What's the difference between "Paste" and "Paste as plain text"?

Paste may pick up the character formatting (italics? Bold? specific fonts?) where plain text would just be the letters... at least that's my guess. I've never noticed it having a major effect either way.

Biggest difference would be line breaks. Plain text won't pick up new lines and will instead just paste it all as a single line.
