They don't.  In particular, Gecko represents selections via DOM Range objects, 
and copy operations serialize said Range objects.  Therefore neither 
text-transform nor generated content affect the text/plain serialization. 
Further, since the selection is a DOM Range, it cannot represent selections that 
include generated content.


P.S.  2 minutes of testing indicates that Opera 9.02 on Linux also ignores 
text-transform when serializing to text/plain on copy.
