Wow Ingolf. That's one large amount of front end code (with a lot of
branches, it seems)  for such a compact palette. If I may ask, did you
code all that by hand in an editor, or do you have a build process
that writes the code to the SetFaceAndFont2.nb file?

I think the search functions you put in there make very good use of
Google's operators. :Applause:

WRI: If you would implement something similar to the CopyAsInputFormK
button on this palette, we would probably have less people pasting the
string representation of box forms into MathGroup emails.

For example:
Copy as plain text from Mathematica's right click menu:

In[1]:=
\!\(\@\(a\/0\)\)
From In[1]:=
\!\(\*
  RowBox[{\(Power::"infy"\), \(\(:\)\(\ \)\), "\<\"Infinite expression \
\\!\\(1\\/0\\) encountered. \\!\\(\\*ButtonBox[\\\"More\[Ellipsis]\\\", \
ButtonStyle->\\\"RefGuideLinkText\\\", ButtonFrame->None, \
ButtonData:>\\\"Power::infy\\\"]\\)\"\>"}]\)
Out[1]=
ComplexInfinity

CopyAsInputFormK (It would be nice to keep the cell tags though):

Sqrt[a/0]
  Power::"infy" : "Infinite expression (1/0) encountered.
(ButtonBox[\"More\[Ellipsis]\", Rule[ButtonStyle,
\"RefGuideLinkText\"], Rule[ButtonFrame, None],
RuleDelayed[ButtonData, \"Power::infy\"]])"
ComplexInfinity
