not sure the right syntax but basically you have to put it on the
clipboard and specify the contents are html etc..

I got the cut/paste thing. Let me ask another way. I get the html text
instead of the formatted html.

how are you, programatically putting the html on the clipboard, how
are you specifying that the contents of the clip are to be treated as
rich html, rather than as dumb plain text?

It's a couple of extra steps, but what I generally do is write the HTML to a
file and launch that file using IE (from a script that wraps
get-bufferhtml). When you copy/paste from IE, it shows up correctly in Word.
I don't have the script on this PC or I'd post it.

With PSCX 1.1.1 you can do this:

gps | ConvertTo-Html Name, Id, Handles | Join-String | Set-Clipboard -Html
{$_}

Without PSCX 1.1.1, it gets tricky because you have to call the
System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.SetText($text, 'Html') method on a separate
thread that is configured STA.
