Steps to reproduce

I just find that in IE Edge v40/15 , when you paste some text from a , into the same and get the data with e.clipboard.getData(“text/html”), what I get is some thing confusing, instead of the part I pasted, I got a bunch of something like debugging information, like in the picture in the attachment (inside ), what I actually pasted is only paragraph element

I made a jsfiddle for it, you could try it out:

Paste something from the contenteditable div into the same one with IE Edge v40/15 and the thing will be shown in the div below.

And I’d like to know is IE Edge 40 pushed to all the Windows 10 users now?
