this link
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms536656(v=vs.85).aspx

to the pasteHTML method of the IE DOM documentation 

refers to document.selection to create a Range object into which to pasteHTML....

it should be updated to either
1. note the dropping of the selection method in IE11 in favor of getSelection
or
2. use feature testing for selection support to branch the script logic accordingly depending apon the UA versions support for selection and getSelection.

the root documentation node is at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh772384(v=vs.85).aspx - Document Object Model
