The IHTMLDataTransfer::getData method enforces cross-frame security and allows data transfers only in the same domain. To the user, this means that a selection that is dragged between different security protocols, such as HTTP and HTTPS, fails. In addition, that a selection that is dragged between two instances of the application with different security levels, where the first instance is set to medium and the second is set to high, fails. Finally, that a selection that is dragged into the application from another drag-enabled application, such as Microsoft Word, also fails.
