        Might depend on how you're doing the "copy".

        Just highlighting a section of text is enough to
        "copy" for purposes within Emacs itself; Emacs
        can paste that in just fine.  And SOMETIMES that
        same block can be pasted into other applications.

        But some applications seem to draw ONLY from the
        Windows clipboard.  To work with those, I specifically
        do an Emacs "copy" using Esc-w (or Ctrl-w and Ctrl-y
        to cut and restore the original ).  Then the text
        is in Windows' clipboard and pastes just fine in
        every app I've used.  (I haven't specifically tried
        xterms, though.
