Copy selected text as HTML to clipboard

I use scrivener, so I can have my texts fragmented but it shows fine in Marked.
But If I select part of the text and copy it to the clipboard as HTML, it is inserting the entire scrivener text and not only the selected text in the clipboard

It would be nice If I could just copy the selected text.

    The problem is that the source view and the preview view are rendered separately and are vastly different. I can't just pull the source from the preview (it's polluted with extra markup for styling), and there's no way to correlate the selection with a specific range in the source. I'd love to make this happen, but I don't have a way right now. You can always flip to source view and copy the section you want, but I know that's a bit of a pain on large documents (especially since there's no functional search in source view...).
