RevBrowser is a special kind of beast and needs special treatment :-)

Not tested, but this should be doable with something like this:
put revBrowserGet(tBrowserId, "selected") into CurrentlySelectedText
set the clipboarddata["text"] to CurrentlySelectedText

Check the entry for "revBrowserGet -> selected" in the docs.

> Thanks.

A votre service monsieur :-)
