Copy as Plain Text will copy the output of Grid as tab-delimited entries.  If you use Print[] to print the output, then the regular Copy menu command will use Copy as Plain Text by default on the contents.  This is controlled by the setting of the TextClipboardType option on the Print style.  That option is documented in the v9 documentation.

These tables are always built using Grid, and they appear in output cells or a Manipulate. The trouble is, the text in the tables cannot be copied and then pasted into a word processor or spreadsheet because it comes with all the Mathematica code, braces, etc. Is there something I can do so that text can be copied as tab- or comma-delimited so that it can be used elsewhere?
