Is there a Chrome extension to fix my issue?

Does anyone know of a Chrome extension which will allow hyperlinked text to copy over to email properly?

For me, this is actually Metafilter related. Take a look what happens when I copy over an FPP to my email, when it should look like this:

"I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics."

I know I can go through the process of changing the font colour and size, but there must be an easier solution. And even when I do change the font, it still doesn't underline the words which contain links. If it matters I use Yahoo email, but I'm unsure if this is an across the board problem. Thanks.

What's your definition of "properly" copying the text over? Do you need the words underlined? Do you want to preserve the links? etc.

Gmail has a "remove all formatting" function, maybe Yahoo does to?

Alternatively, paste the text into the URL bar, copy it from there and input it in Yahoo. Formatting gone.

But yes, I also cannot believe there's no better solution.
