my mouse has two buttons + a scrool wheel that can be clicked.  clicking
the scroll wheel acts the same as clicking the middle mouse button of a
three button mouse.
so, i can highlight any text with the left mouse button ( or other means
), and then click with the the scroll button to paste into any other
application.  if you don't have a three button mouse, and don't have a
scroll wheel that clicks, you can try clicking right and left mouse
buttons very quickly one after the other -- on many systems this is
configured to emulate the button 3 click.

I highly recommend downloading rxvt and configuring it as your terminal
-- it is orders of magnitude better than cmd.exe in my opinion.
