.Net Clipboard.SetText and TextDataFormat.Html

Here’s something that I recently discovered. When calling Clipboard.SetText with the TextDataFormat set to Html, I encountered an issue – an exception being thrown because the text being put onto the clipboard was not in the correct format. It turns out there’s a bit more to setting Html text to the clipboard than just setting the TextDataFormat. I came across this post that describes things in more detail.
