It's been quite a while since I last looked at PyQt3, but here's what I
think you should try:

 1. Call the QTable's numSelections() method to get the number of selections.
    (If you are using the "Multi" selection mode, there may be more than one
    of them).
 2. Pass each selection number (from zero up to, but excluding, the total) to
    the table's selection() method to obtain a QTableSelection for each
 3. Using the cell row and column limits from each QTableSelection, pass row
    and column numbers to the QTable's text() method to get text for each

Maybe there's an easier way to do this. Let us know if you find one.
