Ah. I didn't realize it was there (or expect it!). I think if NEWS
said something like `supports several drag-and-drop protocols under X.
See Info node `(emacs)Drag and drop' for details.', that would be
fine. I assume GNOME uses XDND, in which case I think it would be
useful for the manual to say so. (I thought GNOME used something
else, though little in GNOME seems to be constant...)

Yes, I doubt it's worth doing, even though I have a fondness for
OpenWindows, especially in long-lost NeWS.

It happens with both Emacs and Galeon in the POSIX locale or with
LC_CTYPE=en_GB, but the locale shouldn't make a difference to Emacs
insofar as X gives it enough data, and this is purely ASCII anyway.

I don't know. That was the only one I knew from which I expected to
be able to drag text...
I'll try to get you more gdb data when I get the chance and try it
from another CDE system.
