Problems with Mathematica text in email

I have noticed recently that a number of posts show text with powers and 
other symbols. For example, x^2+y^2==z^3 shows up with the nice 
exponentials in the text rather than what I just showed. I am not sure 
how this was copied, but I can't get it. Anyway, when I copy such things 
into a notebook it comes out as x2+y2==z3, which makes it difficult to use.

Is there a way to copy this stuff into a notebook so it does it 
correctly? If not, then it would be nice if posters would Copy As Plain 
Text. Does anyone else have this problem? I am using Thunderbird under WXP.
