It would be nice to be able to directly copy the selection source text without having to first view the selection source and then copy it. A simple element in the right-click menu with something like 'Copy Selection Source' under the view would do it.

I'd have a go at writing a patch for it myself but I'm not sure where to start.

Reproducible: Always

I would like to request this feature as well.  "Copy as HTML" or something, both in context menu, and Edit main menu.

Thanks!
