        It depends on the filetype of the source file and the dest file. It
        also depends on the foldmethod. For example, for foldmethod=marker, the
        markers are also copied over with the fold, so it will stay intact, but
        for fdm=syntax, if, for example, you paste from a .cpp file into a .html file, the
        folds will be different. fdm=marker is the fold method that is the most
        readily copiable since it contains the fold info inline in the text. It
        is also the most portable between developers, since developers on a
        project can share folds even across editors, ie, emacs can fold based on
        fold markers, etc.
