1.7.1 Registered Clipboard Formats

Vendors can create their own Clipboard Formats, called Registered Clipboard Formats. A Registered Clipboard Format is identified by a string that contains the name of the Clipboard Format (as specified in section 2.1.1). Vendors can define their own Registered Clipboard Formats provided that the string that identifies the Registered Clipboard Format is prefixed with the "OleExternal" string literal.
