OK, what's the magic procedure for copying the text contents of a 
notebook cell and pasting it into a word processor or newsgroup message 
so I *don't* get something like the following?

\!\(\*  RowBox[{\(ReplaceAll::"reps"\), \(\(:\)\(\ \)\), 
\culations\\\"\\)\\)]\\)}\\) is neither a list of replacement rules nor 
a \valid dispatch table, and so cannot be used for replacing. 
ButtonStyle->\\\"RefGuideLinkText\\\\", ButtonFrame->None, 

*  What do I select?  (Cell bracket?  or cell contents?)

*  Which of the FrontEnd menu commands do I choose?

Seems as if each and every one of the menu commands, *all* of them, lead 
to the above.
