There is a trick I learned that is very useful. It creates an easy way to mail selected text on a Web page to yourself (or someone else). You can set this up as a Favorites item in Internet Explorer to make it simply to be able to do the emailing!

All you need to do is add a Favorites item. You can give it a name such as "Copy Text". In the URL field for the favorites, put the following line of code:

Javascript:selectedText=document.selection.createRange().text;selectedText=escape(selectedText);void(location.href='mailto:?BODY='+selectedText);


This is all one line of code with no line breaks.

Now when you select this Favorites link, your email client will be opened and whatever text is highlighted in the browser will be placed into the body of the email!
