Queries styled text from clipboard as HTML.
For server this will query the clipboard of the user account running the server app on the server computer and not the clipboard of any client.

For macOS, if a webarchive is on the clipboard, the plugin will pick data from that webarchive. Safari puts a Webarchive on the clipboard if you do a copy to the clipboard. If text encoding is UTF-8, the plugin will automatically use this encoding as default unless you overwrite it.
