...and included some queries about the differences between clipboardData 
and fullClipboardData.

Mark, no need to reply:

I always recommend to newcomers that they take a little time to explore 
new features to get a feel for how they work.  After all, nothing beats 
hands-on experience for learning.

So I ate my own haggis and made a sample stack, with notes, that I just 
posted in that forum thread:

Thanks again, Mark, for the reminder about fullClipboardData.  It's not 
only very useful for things I'm working on, but also provides a 
super-simple solution for the OP in that thread.
