Dear Advanced Mathematica Users,

    I have a notebook that takes copied data on my clipboard,
originating from my web browser, and puts them into Mathematica using
the following line:


    Since the data in their formatted state seem to cause troubles for
me, I immediately apply the following two lines:

SelectionMove[nb, All, Cell];

and my programs proceeds well from there.  The only annoyance for me
presently, is that on each occasion a dialog box appears and asks, "Are
you sure you want to remove all the option settings from the current
selection?  Click Recursive to remove options from all subelements as
well."  And three options are given:  Cancel, Recursive, and OK.

    My question is as follows:  Assuming that this is a reasonable
approach to bring in data from a web page, how can I rid my program of
the interrupting dialog box?  How can I tell Mathematica to assume the
answer "Recursive" whenever this situation arises?

                                James J. Fuite.
