Sorry, I don't think so... while we can certainly copy/paste in the
authoring environment, things inside browsers usually have constraints on
how they can transfer information.

(There were some security problems a few years ago with clipboard content
secretly getting sent to CGI routines, so objects in browsers are usually
very careful these days about access to user data.)
