How do I Copy an error message to a text editor document (BBEdit, to be 
specific) as just plain text (what I see in the notebook cell)?

I think I've now tried every possible Copy and Copy As . . .  option in 
the Mac front end menus for Mathematica 4.2, with the text selected and 
with the cell bracket selected; and every one of them (fourteen cases in 
all) gives me a messy version of the error message with a bunch of 
formatting markup stuff inserted.

Frustrating!!!
