Clipboard in version 4.0

This problem only occurs on some web pages, but not most. Unfortunately, I
am restricted to using IE as my browser at work, and I have to access these
particular web pages.

I am just baffled by it working in 2.6.1 and not in 4.0. Both engines use a
clipboard array. \

I might be able to kludge together a work around using vbscript, shell, and
wscript. I would prefer that 4.0 have full access to the clipboard, though.
