           Summary: WikiBhasha should not allow the user to bring outside
                    content into it.
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Normal
         Component: WikiBhasha
        AssignedTo: wbm...@microsoft.com
        ReportedBy: wbm...@microsoft.com
                CC: s.mazel...@xs4all.nl


Bringing content that is other than plain text to WikiBhasha edit area from
outside WikiBhasha (by copy-paste or drag-drop) can cause issue as Wikipedia
requires content to be plain text [preferably in wiki markup]. So, WikiBhasha
doesn’t allow the user to bring content from outside of WikiBhasha to its edit
area.  

Hence, WikiBhasha allows the user to bring the text content to the scratch pad
(as which takes only plain text). This is the expected behavior.

However, if the user used the scratch pad to bring some outside content once,
then subsequent outside content may be brought in directly to the WikiBhasha
edit area without the help of scratch pad, just by copy-paste or drag-drop
directly (even with non-text content).  

Repro steps:
1. Invoke WikiBhasha on any article and wait until the translation completes.
2. Bring some outside content to scratch pade. You can see only plain text in
the scratch pad.
3. Bring some outside content directly to the edit area (right side pane of
steps ‘Collect’ and ‘Compose’). You can see the whole copied content in
WikiBhasha.
