No Cutting or Copying Text in Browser Window

Is there a way to keep users from selecting, cutting, or copying text in HTML within a browser window? Or is there a way to embed text within HTML so the text cannot be copied?

Unfortunately, no. However, if you want to make it harder for people to access the text on your page you could render it as a graphic and then include that JPEG or GIF file on your page. However, I would strongly advise against this since it will greatly increase the download time for your users and make your site a lot less user-friendly.
