Yankee Clipper (YC3) is also a very helpful freeware clipboard manager,
with a broad range of functionality
http://www.intelexual.com/products/index.aspx. You can hide it, dock it,
drag and drop from it -- and there are options that do and don't retain
the formatting (text vs. Rich Text, for example).  I often use this
program in tandem with eCleaner
(http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,6492-order,1-page,1-c,alldown
loads/description.html) -- to clean up junk when copying from other
formats (e.g., grabbing text from a PDF but not wanting the extra line
endings). 

HovText may still be the best tool for the clean text paste, but these
others are great utilities if you have broader needs. Another nice thing
about YC3, for instance, it has a much bigger history than just 10
items.

HovText is a System Tray tool that strips all formatting when you copy,
thus providing a clean text past.  http://hovtext.com/ 

I can't work without this tool here.

Is there a way to force Frame to paste as text when copy/pasting WITHIN
Frame?  Below is the altered line in my .ini file, but I still have to
"Paste Special" when copying between Frame docs or within the same doc.

ClipboardFormatsPriorities=TEXT, RTF, OLE 2, FILE, EMF, META, DIB, BMP,
MIF

I also prefer Fred's method.

But if you still need a keyboard shortcut, it's Ctrl-Shift-V
