I use that so that
autoindent and other Vim features don't change the text that I am copying.
Then I enter insert mode, and I press Ctrl+Shift+V to paste the text into the document.
I have found that it prefixes the text copied ("foobar" in this example) with this:
Yes, that is the lesser-than sign, followed by the letter F, followed by the number 2, followed by the number 2, followed by the greater-than sign. Does anyone know why this appears?
