Safari onPaste

I'm trying to use the onPaste event in a text input, which according to
Apple is supported. However, I get no response in Safari. Firefox works
fine.

You may install Camino from Mozilla Foundation
(http://www.caminobrowser.org) and forget Safari as a nightmare. Just a
suggection.

P.S. Safari differs greately even by minor versions 1.x ... 2.x... from
a complete junk to a tolerable junk. What exact version are you
fighting with?

Link to Apple statement? Code snippet? Safari version?

You may wish to let Apple know, there is an ADC article here that lets
you give feedback:

<URL:http://developer.apple.com/documentation/AppleApplications/Conceptual/SafariJSProgTopics/Tasks/CopyAndPaste.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/30001234>
Safari is very much a work in progress and has changed significantly
between versions.

A pretty stupid one - here's one back: turn on spell checking. What is
the point of such irrelevant, totally useless garbage?

Presumably the OP is writing this for visitors to a web site, not
personal use. Whether the OP runs Camino or not will not magically
imbue Safari with support for onpaste.

Did you test whether Camino supports onpaste? Reality check: Camino
1.0.1 doesn't support onpaste.

<input onpaste="alert('onpaste');">
As for being better than Safari, have you done any comprehensive testing
to determine whether Camino has fewer bugs or better support for web
technologies than Safari? Can you describe any standards-based web
technology that Camino supports better than Safari? And post a test
case or link?

Did you even test the OP's claim that Firefox supports onpaste? I did,
it doesn't work in either Firefox 1.5.0.2 on Windows or 1.5.0.3 on Mac.
I plan to test 1.5.0.3 on Windows soon.

P.S. Safari differs greately even by minor versions 1.x ... 2.x... from
If you think a move from 1.x to 2.x is a minor version change, you
clearly don't understand software version conventions. The difference
between, say, Safari 1.0.3 and 2.0.3 is huge (as expected).
a complete junk to a tolerable junk. What exact version are you
fighting with?


Utterly irrelevant - Safari 2.0.3 doesn't so it is very unlikely that
any other version will either (I didn't test it and don't plan to).
