Computer Term

1. Plain Text

Text documents come in to flavors - "rich text" and "plain text." Plain text, as you might have guessed, is rather plain. While it supports standard ASCII characters, including numbers, symbols, and spaces, it does not support any type of text formatting. Therefore you cannot use bold, italics, underlining, or different font sizes in a plain text document.

Because plain text does not contain information about text sizes or styles, it is the most efficient way to store text. Plain text documents often take up less than half the size of rich text documents containing the same number of characters.

You can use a basic text editor such as Windows Notepad to create a plain text document. If you want to copy text from a formatted document without copying the style, you can also use Notepad. Just copy the text from the original document, paste it into Notepad, then copy it again. The unformatted text will be copied from Notepad to your clipboard. The next time you paste the text, it will be pasted as plain text.
