I'm writting a Word document and I'd like to paste a formatted code-snippets directly from clipboard.

At this moment I am able to write these snippets into an .html file to the harddisk. My goal is to extend my Python script and load this .html file on the clipboard in "formatted text" to directly paste at Microsoft Word.

Does anyone knows any way to do this in Python?

Thanks in advance.
