    For some reason, there is a certain web page that will not let me copy more than one word when using my iPad. Could that be because maybe the website is copy protected or something?

    I was able to do a Select All using Dual Browser.

    Atomic and Safari only allow one word select.

    Must have something to do with the html pre and div tags that everything is enclosed in.

    I found a trick that worked.

    Tap-hold at the very top, just before the text begins, but below the header bar. Sometimes I get a complete select of everything. Sometimes I only get the blank line just above the first line of the text.

    If you only get the first line, then drag the right handle to the right, and everything is selected. It doesn't work if you drag the bottom handle.

    Anyway, doing this I managed to copy the entire text using Safari and then paste it into Notes.

    Weird though.
