In the Emacs model, there is only a Primary selection. It is not an alias for either Source or Target.

The model supports a single {\it region}, which is delimited by the {\it mark} and the {\it point}. Control-space and control-@ set the mark; the point is the same as the current cursor position, which is changed by mouse-gestures, cursor-keys, or control-keys. When the region is established by cursor-keys or control-keys, it is not highlighted. If the region is highlighted, then any gesture that extends it will extend the highlighting as well.

A single left-click sets the point and ensures that the current selection is not in replace-mode. If you then drag the mouse, the location of the downclick becomes the mark, and the point is set to the current position of the mouse. When the region is defined by dragging, it is highlighted. A double left-click sets both the mark and the point.

The Cut and Copy commands make a copy of the text in the region (i.e., the Primary selection); it becomes the Source selection. Middle-click and meta-w call Copy.

Right-click extends and highlights the current selection.

The control- and meta-keys in the Emacs model are not case-sensitive; control-shift-a, for example, has the same effect as control-a. The Emacs model supports Escape + character'' as an alternate way to type meta-character,'' and ISO Latin-1 character composition. See Section~\ref{MetaOptionKeys} for an explanation of meta'' keys and composition.)
