    I did this...

    add following code under <script> tag
    function copyText() {
    var textVal = document.getElementById('copytext').value;
    if(window.clipboardData && clipboardData.setData ) {
    window.clipboardData.setData("Text", textVal );

    html code:
    <input type="text" value="hello world!" name="copytext" id="copytext" />
    <input type="button" value="Copy" onClick="copyText();">

    This script copies the text to clipboard and allows us to paste the text any where .this will work for IE browser.
