How would you do that? 'the clipboard' just reports having 'text'.

Jonathan, the actual application is for a client to be able to convert a selected range of cells into a specific format XML. By far the easiest way to have them do that is to select the cells, Copy, go to the revlet window, and click a big friendly button. The text on the clipboard is then in the right XML format, ready to be pasted into an XML configuration file.

For the moment I just instruct them to do a "test Paste" of the copied cells into their text editor, before going into the revlet. That's enough to fix the problem.
