All I can add is that I tried both command-V and "paste" from the
"Edit" menu. Neither worked.
On the other hand, both worked if I was copying from the Sticky note,
but neither worked when copying and pasting from the web page.
I wonder if this is the same bug. Maybe Jacque's on the right track,
with her hidden-uncopyable character on the web page.
I'll continue to mess around with it to see if I can isolate it more
