While preparing Xinha Here! for the forthcoming release of Firefox 3.0 I got the idea of adding the capability to drag and drop HTML text from the browser into the Xinha editor.  While trying to figure out the best way to do this I discovered, to my amazement, that Xinha Here already does this.  As long as your cursor is in the editor you can drag and drop text and images into the editor to paste all the associated HTML including absolute URLs.
