clip selection as plain text

This is a macro to convert selection to plain text and clip it to a dedicated clipboard. This is useful to keep .rtf cruft from messing up pasted code. I ran into this when Xcode was choking on typographers quotations marks, as an example. File attached.

Hi there, to add to the great work that dmorgan did, I'm posting a macro that will copy the entire document as plain text to the system clipboard. It will also put in double carriage returns between paragraphs if necessary.

Thanks
Lou
