I don't know how related this is, but does this have to do with for
example copy-paste from konqi? EG currently, it always just copy's
text. If I copy text from IE in Windows into MS word, it properly
copies the markup, fonts and urls as well. I'd love to see that in
KDE...  Same with KPDF etc etc.
