Check the video on this page: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-gadgeteer/mobile-software-monday-opera-mobile-95/1107

Around minute 6:10 it shows you how to select and copy/paste text with Opera Mobile.

Short answer you can't. Neither in Opera or E72's browser.
In general on E72 you do copy/paste i.e. in an SMS message by holding down the up arrow next to the shift button and you can select the text to copy.
There is a pain the @ss procedure mentioned here http://aligadgeti.blogspot.com/2009/12/blogging-with-s60-browser-on-nokia-e72.html that in order to copy paste anything and send it to someone else you need to send the site to your email. Then edit the email so that you can copy it to clipboard and then paste wherever you need to paste it.
Hope I helped.
