Just a word of caution...
When copying text and images from browser windows, pop ups, and other  
display objects, always take steps to clean it and test it.  There can  
be many invisible characters that are included in browser codes and  
the operating system clipboard is not able to deal with all  
contingencies.  This is more important when working in non-English  
languages and in uincode.

When copying and pasting into cgi scripts, the rules get a little  
trickier ( than irev scripts )
If you are pasting into the Rev script editor for irev scripts, you  
can see the result immediately.  If you are editing the scripts in a  
text processor such as TextWrangler and uploading directly to the Rev  
server, the scripts can fail when called.
