Is it possible to copy and paste html links from a browser, or MS Word, into a Rev app?

OK, I verified that I can copy from MS Word into AbiWord - so the link
information must be made available in some form.

Would RunRev have a means of accessing this?

If not, is there something I could do with Cscript or Windows Command Line
to access components of the clipboard that are not accessible to RunRev?
