This is a bit off-topic, but it's been an annoyance for a while now....
I've been having difficulty copying code such as that below from my
e-mail client into Mathematica: The e-mail client, Thunderbird, displays
expressions such as "x^2" in a 2-dimensional form, with a superscript
(and no caret); when I copy from there and paste into Mathematica, of
course I get just "x2" -- no superscript and no caret.
I do have my e-mail client set so as not to display HTML as such.
Any ideas?
