Remarks

         Windows Clipboard works with UTF-8  Unicode encoding while .NET strings use with UTF-16 so for clipboard to  correctly             decode Unicode string added to it from  .NET we needs to be re-encoded it using UTF-8 encoding.             

         Builds the CF_HTML header correctly for  all possible HTMLs<br />             If given html contains start/end  fragments then it will use them in the header:              <pre><![CDATA[<html><body><!--StartFragment-->hello  <b>world</b><!--EndFragment--></body></html>]]></pre>             If given html contains html/body tags  then it will inject start/end fragments to exclude html/body tags:              <pre><![CDATA[<html><body>hello  <b>world</b></body></html>]]></pre>             If given html doesn't contain html/body  tags then it will inject the tags and start/end fragments properly:             <pre><![CDATA[hello  <b>world</b>]]></pre>             In all cases creating a proper CF_HTML  header:<br /><pre><![CDATA[
