Paste Without Formatting Implemented in Mozilla Thunderbird

It is now possible to copy formatted text (e.g. from a web page) and then paste it into an e-mail, and the text will be inserted using the formatting (or lack thereof) of the e-mail (target) and not that of the source. This feature is (almost) as cool for Thunderbird, as tabbed browsing is for Firebird. 'Paste Without Formatting' can be accessed via the context menu or the 'Edit' menu. The original bug was bug 64647."

I was very impressed to discover yesterday that I could select and copy a portion of a web page in Firebird, then paste it into Thunderbird and everything came through--formatting and images!

Since I could select what to copy, I could just pick out the news story (including photos!) I wanted to send, without all the web page navigation and advertising.
