I've obviously not used notepad++ (as I don't use windows). But the trick is to paste form word using the paste as text option, not the regular paste that tries to keep all formatting (and if your editor is rtf or html/css aware it'll dump in a truckload of crap. - sometimes it's even hidden from plain sight).
It's a PITA to remember to paste from word using the paste as ... then select plain text method, but in some targets it's critical that you do!
I consider it the price to pay for using word.
