Use Function keys to paste text.

I have a user that needs to be able to paste some static (does not change) in multiple locations in web forms. Is there a way to assign text to different function keys? Such as F1=email address, F2=a paragraph of text, and so on.

Thanks in advance.

Function keys cannot be remapped, they are hard wired for their function. This doesn't mean F keys can't do different jobs, they can. To do this the function needs to be embedded in the program of choice( Internet explorer, mozilla firefox, MS word) Where the program uses the F keys for shortcuts.
A Macro which was suggested by burrcm would be the way to go as they can autofill webforms very easily once set up.
You didn't mention what browser is being used.
Firefox has an add on for just this
