That depends on why you are copying an pasting, but in an environment 
where there is a strong house style, internally produced material ought 
already to be using the same style sheets and externally produced 
material wants to be converted to the official style, which may be 
trivial if it and the house style use structural markup, and a hassle 
otherwise.

Material embedded in the original styles is probably more appropriate 
for object elements, although my quick scan of the "HTML5" specification 
(see bitter debage on www-html) suggests that they allow style sheets to 
be overridden at he div level.
