Apparently Visual Studio (or maybe some add-in, since I don't see that w/ VS 2003, 2008 or 2010?) includes HTML when copying to the clipboard. A couple options:

1) Instead of using Ctrl+V, use Edit | Paste Special | Paste Text (or Paste Rich Text). You can also assign keyboard shortcuts for these commands (Ctrl+Shift+P is the default for paste text) at Tools | Customize | Keyboard.

2) Check Tools | Options | Import | Prefer text/rich text clipboard formats (also at Tools | Quick Options) to always prefer text/rich text over HTML format when pasting, but note that this could also affect pasting from other apps (for instance, pasting from IE will use RTF format instead of HTML).
