This may be too difficult to do, but the idea would be to test that the style
is exactly the same as the surrounding text. If it is, then take the fast

Given the markup you showed it seems that's going to be a challenge. It would
be easy to detect that this is just some text inside some nested span elements.
But I can't see how we could efficiently check that none of the style is
needed. We'd have to somehow parse the style attributes and check that they
match the computed style. It might be possible, but I don't know exactly how
you'd have to code it.

It also seems like a problem that we have two spans on the clipboard in this
case. That's arguably a flaw in the copy code.

Anyway, lets land expected results for Windows -- too bad we can't easily fix
this to work the same way on all platforms, and can't make this simple case use
a simple fast case.
