Thanks for the reply.

Nope...I mean telling the frontmost application to do a copy.
The above applescript will tell whatever is the frontmost app to do a 
'command C'
from its menubar. So, my Rev app is able to tell any application to 
copy the hilited text
if it has access to System Events in OS X.
