Thanks, Jim! Your suggestion is *much* more elegant.

Incidentally, I had to restart my computer before it actually worked. I temporarily changed the QS verb to "Run text command in Terminal" and saw it work in the Terminal window, but running it in the shell had no discernable effect on the clipboard. When I tested it again after a restart, it worked well. I'm not sure what went wrong.

Thank you again!

Try this for an easier (and perhaps more complete) way to do this that would work for every application:

1) Open QuickSilver's Trigger preferences
2) Click the + and select HotKey
3) Type a . (period) to enter text entry mode
4) Type: pbpaste | pbcopy
5) Tab to the Action field and select Run Command in Shell
6) Click Save and assign a trigger hotkey

This will strip all formatting from the text on the clipboard which allows it to pick up whatever formatting is present in your rich text document when you paste.
