When I copy text from a webpage and paste it into my odt document. Making the result a grid of Text lines alternating White & Grey. I want to get rid of the Grey Shading From Behind the Text so as to print the document without the grey shading.

This means that on the source web page, the text is actually organised in a (hidden) table. You may start with inserting the text without formatting (e.g., Ctrl+Shift+Alt+V). With already inserted text, you may convert table to text (Table->Convert->Table to Text...), and also clear formatting (Ctrl+M).
