On a Delphi form I have a TWebBrowser component, and it works well in many ways. But why doesn't it perform my JavaScript instructions for copying and retrieving to and from the clipboard? When displayed in the stand alone MS Internet Explorer it works, but not within my Delphi program. What can I do?

The ExecWB method raises an exception class EOleException; "trying to cancel a drop destination which is not registered" - even though the RegisterAsDropTarget property is true. What should I do?
