Shortcut for Paste Special?

I do a lot of work on web copy and am regularly moving text from web pages to
Word.
To undo the formatting, I highlight and right click Copy then use the Edit
menu to find Paste Special; this takes me to a dialog box where I select
Unformatted Text, then OK.
This is quite a long process. Is there a quicker way to do this?

Use a macro attached to a toolbar button or keyboard shortcut

Sub PasteUnfText()
On Error GoTo Oops
Selection.PasteSpecial _
DataType:=wdPasteText, _
Placement:=wdInLine
End
Oops:
Beep
End Sub

I forgot to say that you can do the unformatted paste from the intial copy
from the web, ie don't have to copy it twice, once from Web and once from
Word.
Also the following may of use:

If there is, I don't know it, but you can apply a keyboard shortcut e.g.
(re-sassign CTRL+ALT+V; you could add it to the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar)
or you could add it to the ribbon - see
