AKICILJ: Open Office, copy/paste weirdness  
Received from a friend; posted with permission. Open Office running on Windows 7.

Using the Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V shortcuts to cut and paste from Open Office to (for specific instance) Semagic results in all of the formatting commands and (possibly) HTML codes to appear in the pasted text.

I know nothing about Open Office, so I don't have a clue where to start with this one. Any ideas?

You get the same sort of thing when pasting from the MS Word Viewer utility.

The "problem" is that cutting is "correctly" copying the formatting of the text.

See my solution below.
