FWIW WebKit already knows how to put plain text on the clipboard, and  
in fact at least on Mac it always copies both HTML and plain text  
form. This allows apps to choose which to use based on their  
capabilities, or to offer both (via a Paste and Match Style command  
for plain text). I think every modern Mac browser puts HTML on the  
pasteboard as at least one of the available formats. I don't know what  
the norm is on Windows.
