    Maybe there is something wrong with my text input. Double tapping just keeps the red dot there. But sometime it does highlight. Ill keep trying and tapping. Thanks for the help.

    I am ashamed to say this but this worked. That was the secret. Double tap faster... And here i was tapping 4 or 5 times when i just needed to tap twice very fast.

    thanks again.

    Oops, I missed the explanation on the first page for selecting text on a web page:
    Menu>More>Select Text , then Highlight Text with your finger and when you lift your finger off the screen the text is automatically copied
