[pmwiki-users] I need a bookmarklet ...

I have looked at the bookmarklet recipes in the cookbook, but neither 
one does what I want.

When surfing away, I find a bit of interesting text on an obscure page.
I highlight the text.
I click on my soon-to-be-installed magic bookmarklet.
A new edit window opens on my wiki with some random name (or with a 
predefined name, like bookmarks), and pasted in the window, ready for 
saving, is the URL of the original page, a blank line, and the text I 
had highlighted.

I know this must be possible, because I saw a similar thing done in a 
Wordpress demo last night (I have not been able to contact the demo 
person for details).

I also found a script that grabs a URL and a script that grabs 
highlighted text and pastes it into an email:


see "Send location" and "Send selected text". I can see the 
Javascript code, but it might as well be written in Swahili for all 
that I can understand.

Does anyone have such a bookmarklet? Can anyone mashup the two I 
found to make one for PmWiki?
