The rich text copy and paste only affects cases where applications offer
an HTML version of the content in their list of clipboard offerings. If
the application sends a mix of HTML and unescaped text that looks like
HTML, that's going to be screwed up. On the other hand, if you copy
HTML with escaped tags (as all applications that copy text _should_
automatically do), there should be no problem, since we honor anything
that's properly escaped.
Make sure the originating application is properly escaping the copied
code beforehand. If that application is gaim, we'll probably need some
samples to fix the problems.
