Summary: Adding HTML Clipboard Format support to win32-clipboard

Initial Comment:
Adding HTML Clipboard Format support to win32-clipboard would be helpful.

Windows supports a clipboard format called "HTML Format". This format allows various fragments of html formatted text to be copy and pasted between applications. The overview about this format is [1].

UltraEdit has this feature as well as Word, Excel. You can copy some fragment of Web browser and paste HTML source to UltraEdit by special pasting menu.

There are C# implementation[2] and Python implementation[3] for reference.
