    i'd like a way of pasting a webpage, eg. if i see an article on a webpage, i could have a blog as follows:
    ----
    sourced from: http://www.externalsite.com/page
    [copy of page follows]
    my comments
    others comments
    ----
    is this doable?

    Look at the object element.

    Have you tried the WordPress Bookmarklet? Login, click "My Profile", and drag the bookmarklet link to your browser's toolbar. Then when you want to blog about a site/article, just select the text you'd like to quote and click the link from your toolbar.

    couldn't follow how to use the <object> tag for this, but the bookmarklet suggestion seems workable.

    If this article on the webpage is from a blog with a newsfeed (RSS, RDF etc) you could use a newsreader and post directly from there. Look at http://wordpress.org/support/index.php?action=vthread&forum=4&topic=883&page=0

    <object data="http://wordpress.org/" type="text/html" width="90%" height="50%">
    </object>

    Posting of the entire text of an article in your own blog may have copyright limitations in some/many situations.

    what flickerfly means to say is: What you are talking about doing is practically always illegal ... you're better off linking to the other website. :-P
