Seigman:

Yasvir was correct in copying Input and Output Forms to plaintext. 
However, that is not the MessageText you questioned, so I ran a few
quick experiments on my lunch break, and found with Mathematica 5.0.1
that even after converting the red MessageText to OutputForm, I was
still unable to "pull the text out".  Bobby Treat's CopyAsInputForm
palette did not work, either.  Nor did converting the MessageText cell
to TextForm.

If you are just posting examples from a larger calculation, then I
would recommend launching the MathKernel window.  This does everything
in plaintext, and I use it to generate small examples for text-only
bulletin boards.

I am not aware of anyone posting a general notebook "text puller" yet,
but maybe someone could carry Bobby Treat's CopyAsInputForm a few
steps further for the rest of us who need to copy and paste plaintext
from whatever type of notebook cell it appears in.  A text puller
would save folks much duplication of effort regenerating notebook
examples in a MathKernel window for text-only bulletin board posts.

Regards,
Harold
