One note of caution regarding copying text from HTML pages and pasting it into OCLC records: There are sometimes hidden characters embedded in the web pages, which OCLC's Connexion seems not to mind. (I encounter these non-MARC characters when I update NARs using Gary Strawn's Authority Toolkit.) I'd recommend taking the extra step of copying web data into a text editor, e.g., Notepad, and then copying the pure text into the NAR.

The Wikipedia example under RDA cited below appears to me as a great example of an ideal way of putting information into the 670:  copy and paste pieces of information from an electronic source.  There is no prohibition against modifying the data into another form, but—unless the result is an increase in clarity—the only thing being accomplished is putting in extra work.
