It's definitely a Windows thing. Most Windows uses don't even
understand the concept of plain text vs. a bitmap picture of some text
being displayed by an app.
Just be glad that they're using a screen capture utilitly and not
taking a picture of thier screen with their phone. [Yes, I've dealt
with problem reports from customers where that's what they send.]
