Thanks for the report, but I cannot reproduce this.  I don't have
Mozilla on the Windows box where I tried this, so I used Explorer to
display the Web page you mentioned and Emacs 21.2 running on a
GNU/Linux system to which I logged using PuTTY.  I had no problems
pasting the paragraph you mentioned into Emacs.

So I think more digging on your part is required.  For example, is
Mozilla necessary to reproduce this problem, or any other Windows
application will do?
