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

If the links are really in there, they should be in the htmltext of the 
clipboard, i.e.:
  set the htmltext of fld x to the clipboardData["html"]

That will put the underlines and links into the field, but you'll have 
to handle the actual navigation after a click by examining the parameter 
passed in the linkClicked message and figuring out what to do.
