Perhaps you could talk someone into writing a macro for Ultra Edit that
would write the highlighted text to a temporary file whose name would be
passed to Stata.  This is basically the way that Stata's do file editor
works, except that it passes the -do- command directly to the running Stata
session rather than starting a new process.
