<script type="text/javascript">

function addLink() {
    var body_element = document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0];
    var selection;
    var n;
    selection = window.getSelection();
    n = selection.toString().indexOf("<");
    if (n == -1) 
        var pagelink = "<br /><br /> Read more at: <a href='"+document.location.href+"'>"+document.location.href+"</a>";
        var copytext = (selection + pagelink).replace(/ /g,"\u00a0").replace(/\n/g, "<br />");
        var newdiv = document.createElement('div');'absolute';'-99999px';
        newdiv.innerHTML = copytext;
        window.setTimeout(function() {
