If you're talking about speakup's cut and paste, then that cut and
paste only works with data currently on the screen, it doesn't work
the same way as cut and paste in an editor.

What you need to do is to mark at the top of page 1, cut at the end of
page 1, paste it into wherever you want to paste it, go to page 2, and
do the same thing, all the way through page 5.

If you don't want to do it that way, and you want to paste data from
lynx into emacs, then I think the best thing to do is to have lynx
dump the page for you into a text file (there are a couple ways to do
this), and then to import that text file into emacs, and do with it
whatever you want to do with it in there. Hth.
