I'm using netscape on Soalris.
I want to copy some text from one netscape window and paste it into another netscape window. I've tried ^C and ^V but that doesn't seem to work.

Fisrt of all, which Desktop are you using? I assume it's CDE as all recent Sun's seem to use that, but Sun used to push Open Look, so it might be some form of OL. Either way there should be a help tutorial which comes up for a new user which explains all this stuff. If you are using CDE try expanding some of the menus in the dock bar at the bottom of the screen, one of them should show you some sort of help icon.
Do you have a Sun extended keyboard with functions like copy, paste etc on the group-of-ten-fn-keys to the left of the qwerty keys? A lot of Open Look applications used to respond to those.
Otherwise try highlight using the mouse to select an area, move the mouse to the destination and middle-click to copy.
Still not working?

I always pull down the menu and look to see what the menus tell me. Mine says Alt+C Alt+V
