Show History Drop-Down List, Modify and Paste Selected Item

This Macro will show a drop-down list that contains the items in the ClipboardFusion History. After choosing an item from the list and clicking OK, the item is manipulated (in this example, it's wrapped in tags for pasting URLs into HTML code), and then pasted into the last active textbox.
