Why not include the OE6 newsgroup? (I have.)

Copy/Pasting Word's formatting into OE(6) is fraught with incompatiblity,

PA Bear,

Thanks for the cross posting.

The Word-OE relationship is not a problem, I copy text from Word into OE
all the time. I just want to automate it more.

One thing I want to do is run a Windows script from IE that inserts the
title, url and selected text from a web page directly into a new e-mail.

Another thing I do is, I copy a web page, then run a Word document that
pastes that selection into Word and does a bunch of formatting on it and
copies it, and then opens an e-mail. I then manually move the focus
from the To line to the client area and paste. I'd like those last two
steps to be automated, so that the clipboard contents get automatically
pasted into the e-mail and the whole operation gets done in one step.
