Default couple of keyboard questions

hey guys, just a couple of questions about using the keyboard...

1) How do you select text and cut/copy/paste with the virtual keyboard? (I know how to do it with the physical keyboard but I almost never use it.)

2) I know that if you tap a field to enter text, the virtual keyboard will pop up but when I'm done entering my text, is there a way to hide the keyboard again?

3) How can I delete more than one email at time? (I use gmail and yahoo email - and, yes, my yahoo email still works - on my Droid.)

Thanks guys!

On the Hero: (I know you're on a droid but i could be similar)

1)Long press for copy and paste functions

2)Is there a button in the bottom left corner of the virtual keyboard that looks like a keyboard and an arrow pointing down? That hides the keyboard

3) Go into email client: Menu/delete and a tick box should appear of what you want to delete.
With GMAIL just tick the boxes in the list then Menu/delete

Thanks! Your answers to 1 and 3 worked. There's no button on the virtual keyboard like you mentioned in 2 but I think I figured it out from just trying a bunch of stuff. (In landscape mode, just swipe down and it'll hide the keyboard. In portrait, hitting the back button will hide it.)
