Is there a way to display a timestamp for each chat message in iChat?

(I'm aware that you can hover your mouse to see a timestamp tooltip, but I want to be able to copy/paste it.)

I don't believe you can enable them for every message in iChat. If you'd like that kind of functionality you might want to use an alternative chat client like adium
