Default Drag and drop

Hello,

I just bought this book, and I must say it is extremely helpful to me. Thank you for writing such a great book!

I just have a question - I know about all the drag and drop functionalities given to me by jQuery, but I need to have a way to create a drop area that can recognize text, images, or text and images that are not explicitly declared as a draggable. For example, I just want to highlight random text on a site whose code I have no control over, like say Yahoo.com, and drag it using browser dragging functionalities, and drop it into a box that I create, all while being able to access what was dropped, etc.

How can I do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
David
