* TITLE/SUMMARY
Extra space added to Clipboard content when copying certain items

* STEPS TO REPRODUCE
0) Launch Apprunner
1) Copy text whose source contains any of the following:
	- a link to another page
	- font-changed text (bold, underlined, font-altered, etc)
	- [will search for other triggers]

* RESULT
 - What happened

Most of the time, an extra space will appear in the clipboard content either
before the text, after the text, or both.

 - What was expected

No extra spaces.

* REGRESSION

 - Occurs On

        [Linux not checked; copy/paste busted]

 - Doesn't Occur On
        Communicator 4.7 (Mac OS)

Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Target Milestone: M11
I just realized...this may be a subissue (or even duplicate) of 13068.
Blocks: 12551
Target Milestone: M11 → M14
Target Milestone: M14 → M12
Marking M12.  Getting basic plaintext copy/paste working is important for beta.
A regression test for this (as soon as I get a review to check it in) will be
part of the out sink test suite, and will be:

TestOutput -i text/html -o text/plain -w 0 -c OutTestData/simple.out
OutTestData/simple.html
Changing Component to Output.
