What does the term "Plain text" mean?

A type of file format that stores information and data without any formatting (bold, italic etc.) or special characters.

The program Notepad on Windows-based computers produces plain text files.

This often makes data contained in the file easier to import into other programs as special characters can often cause problems if they are not supported in the program you are importing the data to.
