Many sites including DotNetNuke are using FreeTextBox ASP.NET HTML Editor. I've noticed that on my Windows Server 2003 machine running IE I am not able to do Control-V to paste text to the editor, even if I can right-mouse click and select “Paste” . It was quite annoying.

Accidentally I found that   IE permission "Allow Paste Operation via script" is disabled on this machine.

I've enabled it and now I can use Control-V to paste.

I am not sure which security risks are envolved with enabling this option.

I'm not sure either but on My PC: Win 2000 and latest version of IE 6 SP1 the "Allow Paste Operation via script" is enabled after clicking the Default Level button for the internet zone in the IE options, security tab. So, its the default for Win2000 users... wonder if XP SP2 also has it turned on by default for the internet zone?

On Windows Server 2003 the "Allow Paste Operation via script" is off by default.
