Select entire paragraphs while editing text on the iPhone

I agree whole-heartedly with: "Authored by: soundsgoodtome on Thu, Mar 18 2010 at 5:39AM PDT
i just wish this worked on non-user-input text, such as text in mobile safari or incoming email messages, etc. in all of those cases, while it's possible to select text in the usual ways, the method in this hint doesn't work.

ironically, it's far more common that i need to copy someone else's paragraph -- not one of my own."

Additionally, I've found that, if I do it carefully in just the right place (bottom of screen, somewhere around the bottom of the text/top of the bar, and to the left of center) and hold it longer than just a tap, it "selects all."
