So PNG, JPG et al go in the "support reading from clipboard" list, and the "support writing" starts out with text/plain, text/html and text/uri-list - although it would be nice if CSV was also considered safe enough. It would also be good if we could come up with an API for safely writing images to the clipboard. Just playing: event.clipboardData.addImageFromCanvas(canvasElm, 'image/png') Hot or not? -Hallvord R.
