Could there be some invisible character in some of the articles that is
messing up the clipboard?
Find a card which does it and then check the length of the clipboard
data. Go back to your field and find the charToNum of the next (& maybe
the last character) character and see what it it. If you can determine
that a there is a particular invisible character causing problems, you
can just replace it before copying the field to the clipboard.
