Guide to copy text from websites using Clippy

It talks about using this process with hClipboard, which is another copy and paste iPhone app, but this process works just fine with Clippy too. Essentially this process creates a bookmarklet which will turn any webpage into editable text which Clippy can copy and paste.

So what do you think, do we genuinely have copy and paste now?

P.S. For those of you who don't know what Clippy is, it's an app in Cydia which adds copy and paste buttons to your keyboard.

EDIT: After trying this, everything looks like it's going to work but for some reason clippy won't select the text. The keyboard pops up just fine and the website turns into editable text, but all you can do is move the cursor around. Nothing gets selected. SOOOOOO CLOSE! Someone else please try this and see if you can get the text to select. Once you try this you'll see how close this is...
