The Three Cmd's
cmd-a..highlights the entire page or if you are in the "togo" box it will highlight the entire "url"
cmd-c..copies what ever you have highlighted
cmd-v..Pastes the previously copyied or cut text any where you are able to type.

Yes, CMD + A does highlight the whole page when using webtv. If you want to highlight specific lines though, you place your cursor where you want to highlight and while holding down your SHIFT key, you use your ARROW keys to highlight.
