    Hi, I have a new iPad with iOS6. and I need a little help. (1) Can anyone please tell me how to send highlighted text from a web page by email.? When I highlight the text a copy button appears but does not give any options and (2) where does the text go if I press copy?

    After you've copied the text, open your Mail account and, in the body of the message, press and hold your finger. A pop-up should appear and one of the selections should be "Paste." Once you select Paste (and the text you copied appears), you can finish filling out the e-mail to send it off.

    When you copy something, it stays on a virtual "clipboard," ready to be pasted in to any place that accepts text input. So, you could put that copies text in the Notes app, a word processing app, etc.

    Hope this clarifies.
