One Click To Copy Script Works in IE6 but not any other Browsers

Recommended Posts

As a project to "boilerplate" some text, I had this idea of making a couple of textareas in html and having a single click on the input button copy the contents to the clipboard and then pasting the text into another blank textarea. Several textareas would contain the different pieces of text and I would then be able to 'assemble' the full text into the 'blank' textarea and then, of course, copy this entire piece to the clipboard and migrate it to the final spot for copying. Anyways, BuffaloHELP had the basic code for the javascript, but it seems that this code only works in Internet Explorer. I understand the Gecko Browsers (and Opera/Netscape) use a different scripting language. Could you folks have a look to see what would need to be done to this code to get it working cross-browser?Thanks a bunch...LINK REMOVED jlhaslip Source code here:
