Why does x-get-selection default to 'STRING? Is that sensible
- (let ((primary (x-get-selection 'PRIMARY)))
+ (let ((primary (x-get-selection 'PRIMARY 'TEXT)))
Would it make sense to have x-get-selection default to 'TEXT instead?
TEXT can be in any encoding which can make it diffcult. Nowdays I think the
default should be UTF8_STRING, and if that fails, try TEXT and then STRING.
But I think the application should not offer STRING (which implies Latin-1) if
the data isn't in latin-1.
