The messsage means that OpenElement is using a nonstandard format for content on the clipboard. First try Edit → Paste Special → Unformatted Text to paste from OpenElement.

If that doesn't help, use Publish to Web. Copy the text from the web page and in OpenOffice use Edit → Paste Special → Unformatted Text. If you like surprises, you can try using Edit → Paste instead, however this will copy invisible formatting attributes from the web page to your OpenOffice document. Experience has shown it is easier to reapply formatting to unformatted text in OpenOffice than it is to determine what mysterious attributes are causing trouble for you and then find a way to remove them.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.
