Steps to reproduce

1.Open any XML document (

  1. IE provides XML folding by default.
  2. Copy the XML (Ctrl+A Ctrl+C) and Paste in a notpad or somewhere.
  3. All the folding markers (+ , - ) also get copied which is really annoying.
  4. Also Folded XML nodes should be copied anyways, which wont happen in IE.
  5. This is pretty basic stuff but really annoying if you need to copy XML for some reason.

Hope it gets fixed.
