I could copy&paste the text easily from xterm to emacs and vice versa. But I can't copy and paste from xterm or emacs to netscape. However I can copy from netscape and paste it to xterm or emacs. Any idea how to solve this?

I know this sounds ridiculous, but in order to make cut and paste work between "normal" X/console programs (such as Emacs, vi, etc.) and Netscape/WP8, you'll need to use a few third-party applications.  One solution consists of wxcopy and wxpaste, two programs which come with WindowMaker (http://www.windowmaker.org).

I believe you can also just use the copy and paste available in the edit menu.

You don't need a 3#rd program, you may have one for advanced usage ;-)
You must paste in netscape, while selection in xterm is active.
Or you can setup xterms advanced buffers in xterm's class resource file: XTerm.

I don't have any trouble doing a copy from an xterm into Netscape. I just select the text and then hit the middle mouse button (both btns at once) in Netscape. One thing that sucks -- you have to be precise. Accidentally selecting any text in Netscape erases what you've stored.
