It _isn't_ necessary, when using StongED to view the HTML source.
f8 to view the source, select the URL, press ctrl-shft-c to copy it to
the clipboard, click in the NS URL field (or Open URL window), press
ctrl-v to paste the URL. Perhaps I've misunderstood the problem?
The problem is that Copy saves the file type of the file you are
copying from to the clipboard, and Paste presents that file type to
the application you are pasting into. NetSurf doesn't accept plain
text pasted from a file that isn't type Text (fff). This restriction
seems to be as unnecessary as it is frustrating.
