As far as I know, ASCII actually refers to non-formatted text -- no bold, no
underlining, etc. If you have formatted text in Word, then you copy and
paste it into your e-mail program, it may keep the formatting (depending on
your e-mail application).
Albeit, the other suggestions that were posted may not have been clear, but
I think they were on the right track. You have to save it as "plain text",
"text only", or some such format in Word or Notepad. Then you can copy this
info and paste it into your e-mail application without (or with very little)
fear of keeping the fomatting.
