    While looking at how to use a copy and paste app on google code, I came across a very interesting link within the tutorial. It redirected me to a page that told me how to copy & paste web content in mobile safari--not just to email, but to Notes (or any kind of notes app) and email. It's really amazing; I copied an entire article from ESPN's iphone website into my notes, and it worked without much difficulty. I've only experimented with it on that site, so the results of the copy & paste may vary by site.

    Note: make sure you have either Clippy or another copy and paste app (like hClipboard). If you don't, it won't work. Also, this isn't an app, it's a bookmark.

    Clippy works better, and is better. Find it on iSpazio's Repository

    I know about Clippy. Clippy is good for highlighting certain text. What I've posted is good for highlighting whole chunks of text at a time. Also keep in mind that you can select from where you want to copy/paste with this method, like Clippy.
