As said above, here there is _no_ problem in pasting the URL from
clipboard (RO 6.20, NS 2107, SE 4.69). Which application are you using
to view the NS HTML source?
Edit by default. I don't normally use StrongEd. I had a look at the
StrongHelp for StrongEd and eventually found ctrl-shift-C and
ctrl-shift-V, but it doesn't give any explanation of what they do. I
assume it means copy/paste forcing type to text.
