Not what I want.

Suppose "Copy Link Location" was a link that pointed to
http://www.foo.com/copylink.htm. I want to cut-n-paste the
words "Link Location". What you suggest puts the
"http://www.foo.com/copylink.htm"; in the buffer.

That works but is a cludgy work-around that requires additional editing
thus nullifying the benefits of cut-n-paste.

How could men dream of blaming themselves for their woes when they
have been persuaded that by nature they are inert, that the source
of all action, and consequently of all responsibility, lies outside
themselves, in the will of the sovereign and of the lawgiver?
