[sword-devel] Xiphos : copy'n'paste to facebook produces Chinese !

The complete taxonomy of paste behavior from Xiphos in Win32:

         Copy,dialog,HTML  Copy,dialog,plain   Copy,^C,plain

FB          works              works             fails

Anywhere    works              works             works
else (FF)

"Anywhere else" means any ordinary Firefox text entry box.  FB's text
entry boxes are decidedly not ordinary, by any definition.  They are
hyper-controlled by an assortment of vile javascript and neither I nor
anyone else can vouch for what it does.

It's a Facebook bug, misinteracting with however Win32 delivers
^C-copied content, period.  It is not a Xiphos bug in any manner.
