Thanks Dar, but the goal is to get only the hilited text from that 
field onto the clipboard.


In the Applescript I sent, the following does a 'command key C' or 
copy which gets the
hilited text of the frontmost window:

	tell application "System Events"
		key code 8 using command down
	end tell

So, I need to be able to do a 'copy' using the frontmost window.
