Response to: Copy/Paste

The X11 "standard" way to do Copy/Paste is a bit different from Windows. Some applications (like, Mozilla, XEmacs ...) support both the X11 scheme and the Windows/Mac scheme, which can add to the confusion.

There is no explicit "Copy" function in X. Instead, simply select the desired text (by highlighting it) -- copying is implicit. It can now be pasted into the same or another window, using the middle mouse button.

Think of it as "Select"/"Paste", rather than "Copy"/"Paste".
