    If you look at the post here :
    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/1483341-post11.html

    you can see that the poster has copied and pasted the name of another person in the thread into his post, which is something that many people do do so that we can spell names right (and we do get some very strange names round here).
    However when copy/paste is used it not only copies the text, but the font, colour and hyperlink - which makes it rather glaring in the post. One can work around this by retyping the name out and then removing the copied text (and link) but I was wondering if it could be changed to that copying would only copy the text - at least that can be easily reformatted back into normal type and I am pretty sure that this can be done

    I've never had a problem with that, actually I've hyperlinked it intentionally on a number of occations.
