What about Drag and Drop? It still doesn't work, even in 1.1b! I am talking the sample in xulplanet (XUL Tutorial 8.7) with use of <script src="chrome://global/content/nsDragAndDrop.js"/></script> <script src="chrome://global/content/nsTransferable.js"/></script>.

It doesn't work in 1.0, not in 1.1b. Even after the script is given permissions. Is there any sample/info how to make it work in a regular, not an application, XUL file? I'm talking about ondraggesture, ondragover, ondragexit, ondragdrop events. IE has similar events and they are very handy. Of course, one can simulate Drag n' Drop with mouseup, down and over events, but it still artificial and inconvinient.
