When I drag and drop an image onto LiveCode from Firefox I get the
following data in the dropdata ["files"]

䕒佖〷〰⼀ U䠖汥敶楴慣丠略ⱥ湵捩摯ᥥ ഀ'ࠀ

No idea what that is :)

Nothing usefull is returned in the other data fields: styles, rtf, unicode,

In Google Chrome the only data I get is for dropdata ["image"] and looks
something like:

ˇÿˇ‡JFIFˇ˛GFile source:
XYZ œacspAPPLnoneˆ÷”-ADBE
1999 Adobe Systems IncorporateddescAdobe RGB (1998)XYZ ÛQÃXYZ

Does anyone know what these encoding are - and would it not be useful if
liveCode reported consistent results between browsers?
