Would you mind trying copying from ms word? I have a hunch that microsoft is at the heart of my plight.

Okay, this time I actually tried it. :) I have an extension in Firefox 
that allows me to copy either plain text or html text. I copied a 
selection as html.

In Rev: set the htmltext of fld 1 to the clipboardData["text"]

That works here.
