If source page (e.g. front page of http://nytimes.com) contains iframes with
alternative content like:

<iframe src="...">

and user is trying to put this content into clipboard then
the clipboard contains CF_HTML formatted text given as:

<iframe src="...">

as you may see text is wrongly escaped - it should match original.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open http://nytimes.com in FireFox.
2. Press Ctrl-A to select text in full.
3. Press Ctrl-C to copy it into clipboard.
4. Paste clipboard content into any UA do not supporting IFRAMEs. E.g. 
http://blocknote.net application or 
http://www.evernote.com/en/products/evernote/ application.
5. Note that non-intended iframe content appears. 

Actual Results:  
<iframe src="...">

Expected Results:  
<iframe src="...">
