Drag and drop a Bookmark

I just realized I forgot to insert the script (time to go to bed!) This 
is to drag right from the browser to a field:

on dragdrop
    put url (the dragData) into theHTML
    put offset("<title>",theHTML)+7 into b
    put offset("</title>",theHTML)-1 into z
    put char b to z of theHTML into me
    put cr & the dragData after me --the URL itself
end dragdrop

One problem would be if there is no Title tag and the format of the tags 
may vary a bit.

>    put url("file:" & the dragdata) into tData
>    get lineOffset("<string>",tData)
>    put char 10 to -10 of line it of tData after me
> end dragdrop
