Conversion to Pure Text

In the writing I do, I often copy text from one document (a web page, another presentation, an Excel spreadsheet) to whatever document I'm working on at the moment. This can include KB Article titles, quotes attributed to the author, as well as bits of one presentation that I'm recycling in the next. One problem with this is that the old formatting is often pasted in - and then has to be adjusted to fit into the formating of the newer document. Thanks to an entry on KC Lemson's blog, I've discovered PureText. PureText strips away all the formatting from the clipboard, so that when you do a paste, you paste just the pure text. And one very nice feature - the product is free!
