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.
