OK. (BTW, I often want to *only* copy the URL, not open it.)

Yes, I know; but it's frustrating (for an emacs-w3m user at least) to
have a URL button, but not be able to do anything with it apart from

That seems unfortunate; I'm not acquainted with emacs-w3m or gnus
internals well enough to see any more convenient solution (to avoid some
code duplication perhaps) -- if you don't see one, it might very well be
the case there is none...
Thank you very much for your feedback,
