Cut, copy, paste in unsigned apple

Hi All,

I understand there are security concerns with accessing the system clipboard from an unsigned applet. However, a user can do hot keys, CTRL-X, CTRL-C, CTRL-V to access the system clipboard from an unsigned applet. So why can't I hook up a DefaultEditor.CopyAction to a popup menu on a text field and make that work. Whether the user is invoking a right mouse click "Copy" or doing CTRL-C, it's the same action ( or it should be ). So what's up with the mouse click copy? That only copies to the local clipboard. CTRL-C copies to the system clipboard. What am I missing?

thanks,

B
