Copy to clipboard with formatting and colors

What I am trying to do

From the Obsidian Preview, copy a section from the currently open markdown file, into the clipboard so that I can email that info via Outlook desktop app, to another Windows user.

What I expect

That the colors, code block backgrounds, fonts, etc. be copied to the clipboard as well.

What actually happens

The text may copy as Ascii or it may convert the characters to unreadable extended characters. The header sizes copy, but the code block font will not copy, nor will the code block background.

Things I have tried

I have tried exporting to HTML, DOC, PDF. The PDF export seems to work the most reliably. When I open that PDF in Word, some of the characters in the header lines convert the font forecolor of some of the characters to the same as the backcolor so the characters are essentially visually invisible.
