Hi, you get no responst because a mathematica notebook *is* plain text (7 bit ASCII) Or that is: Notebook[{ Cell[CellGroupData[{ Cell[BoxData[ \(Solve[x^2 - 1 \[Equal] 0, x]\)], "Input"], Cell[BoxData[ \({{x \[Rule] \(-1\)}, {x \[Rule] 1}}\)], "Output"] }, Open ]] }, FrontEndVersion->"4.2 for X", ScreenRectangle->{{0, 1280}, {0, 1024}}, WindowSize->{520, 600}, WindowMargins->{{Automatic, 14}, {102, Automatic}} ] a Mathematica notebook in plain text. Or what do you mean with "plain text" ??

Is this a correct statement?
