I don't think this is expected to work. In Safari 1.2, window.getSelection()
incorrectly returned a string instead of a Selection object. So, the correct
code for Safari 1.3/2.0+ would be:

tell application "Safari" to do JavaScript "getSelection().toString()" in
document 1

Unfortunately, Selection:toString() used to have a bug which prevented this
from working (see bug 4609). To work around it, use:

tell application "Safari" to do JavaScript "getSelection() + \"\"" in document

Please see <http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/DOM:window.getSelection> for
the complete description of getSelection() and the Selection object.
