The latest checkin implemented real system clipboard support for WebKit. However, the icons themselves in the UI will not work as they don't go through the native system. To fix this, use zeroclipboard to capture the clicks and use the clipboard. For non-WebKit (until the FF patch is in) we don't want to do this as we end up in the state of some copys being global, some being local. Hell.
This is a mass migration from Mozilla Labs :: Bespin to Bespin :: Editor.
did a different solution to clipboard access
