Copy modal dialog windows in Internet Explorer

I'm not sure how long this feature has been around, or how common it is, but I've just (accidentally) discovered that you can copy a modal dialog box, such as the message box you get with the alert(..) java-script function.

For example, click here to pop up a window, then while it has the input focus (which is immediately after it pops up) just press CTRL + C and you'll get a nice tidy text representation of the contents of the message box.

This is so handy, I can't believe I only discovered this today.
