Since no fewer than three people pointed this out, I just wanted to make sure 
that people know that, as of 7.0.1, regular copy/paste uses MathML automatically 
when appropriate (i.e. when copying either a single typesetting cell, in part or 
in whole, that contains math or code, but no graphics).  So, it will generally 
be the case that using Copy As is not required.
