The results of a Copy as HTML operation are incorrectly
marked as Text (mimetype=text/plain).

This causes paste operations into an application such
as Microsoft Word or Thunderbird to insert the HTML
markup as plain text.

This feature would be a lot more useful if the
clipboard contents could be correctly recognized as
HTML. If the current behavior is desirable by some,
maybe another option could be added.

To reproduce:
1) Run SQL to produce results.
2) Select one or more rows from result
3) Right-click and choose "Copy as HTML"
4) Switch to another application that supports
formatted/rich text, such as Microsoft Word and paste.
5) Observe HTML markup inserted as plain text.

I tried this with version 2.1 final.

(Also, copy as syntax highlighted SQL from the SQL
worksheet would be great, but that's another feature
request)
