The output is busted when trying to use "selection only". 
Use the Composer menu item Debug | Test Selection to  see that the entire 
document is outputed, not just the selection.  I traced into the selection code 
and it seems to call:
encoder->Init(doc, aFormatType, aFlags);

Turns out Mike changed this to call new code in nsSelection, which doesn't work
for anything less than the full root node.  I'm going to work with Mike to help
him fix it.

Mike said he would check in a fix for this. Reassigning. Also adding some extra gratuitous text because we're testing Ender Lite at the same time. :-)

Also some text after two blank lines.

Not clear to PDT whay a blocker.  What is the user problem here?   Needed for 
dogfood, or can we do nsbeta2+?

Launch the app with the console trigger set (on win32 create a shortcut to the 
desktop, highlight the shortcut, right-click, and select properties, in the 
Target field append -console). Bring up the mozilla home page, and select 
EditPage. In Composer, select some text, then select Debug|Test Selection -- 
what you will see in the console is the entire page scroll past 3 times. 
This manifests itself to the end user when they select text within a table -- 
the paste operation will paste the sleection 3 times, there are certainly other 
situations where this will appear. This bug is a blocker for bug 40457, which is 
the triple paste problem with tables
Depends on: 40457

This method is used in many places in the editor to get the selected text:
1. user selects text to create a link around it.
2. selected text that is to be edited in the Insert | HTML Source dialog.
3. as the suggested name for Insert | Named Anchor.
4. to copy the text or selected table cells to the clipboard.
In all cases we get the entire document instead of just the selection. This is
very confusing to the user.

Putting on [nsbeta2+][dogfood-] radar.  Does not need a fix ASAP for daily work, 
but we should fix this for beta2.

The string output routine is busted (bug 41814) today, so I can't verify this
