Possible to prevent pasting into form-entry fields?

P: n/a
Just curious. I am writing a description for a site I want developers
to build (mostly in flash) I was wondering if it is possible to
prevent pasting into a field

Thanks!

Why in the world would you want to develop a site in Flash? Just to piss
off users on dial up?
As long as you're doing something that silly, sure, prevent pasting with
javascript so I can turn off scripting and do whatever I want to your
site.

(IOW, no, you can't do that reliably)

No. But if you explained which particular problem you're trying to
solve, perhaps we could provide alternative solutions.
