Embedding vs. Static Pasting

What's the difference between embedding something and doing an ordinary paste from the Clipboard?

If you paste text into Excel from Notepad (an application that doesn't support embedding), that text arrives as though you typed it directly into the active worksheet cell. (If the text spans multiple lines, Excel delivers each new line to a new cell in the current column.) What you paste, in other words, becomes ordinary worksheet data.
