It works for basic text, but not for other data types. I can't speak
for other platforms, but on an X based system I think this should
happen:
(1) If a bitmap graphics is cut or copied, it should make a png copy
to the X clipboard.
(2) If it is a font, copy it to the X clipboard as a TTf.

Other data types should follow as the standard evolves.

Actually, you CAN copy images using the pasteboard. I frequently use
that functionality. Don't know about fonts, but I'm pretty sure it
would be possible.
