   Hmm?  Could you give an example?  I think selected text _is_
   automatically copied into the clipboard, including on Windows and the

No.   On both the  Windows and  Mac platforms,  selecting is  just that:
selection.  You  then have to  use a command  on the selection.   One of
those commands is copying, bound to  Ctrl-C on Windows and on Apple-C on
Mac.  In fact,  since I most often  use Unix in text mode,  I have never
get accustomed to  what seems to me a strange  (and not clean) behaviour
on the part of X, that is, selection of a text also means copying it.

I am  not sure about  it, but  I would say  that Emacs ports  on systems
other than X should take this into account.
