           Summary: WebHTMLView allows modification of non-editable text by
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x (Safari 3)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: evan at rainmakerinc.com

If you invoke a service that (takes from, operates on, then) sends text to the
requestor, WebHTMLView will insert/paste the text in the services pasteboard in
non-editable areas.

This doesn't appear to be new with Safari 3, it happens on 10.4.10 as well.

Easy to reproduce: Build and install/run the SimpleService AppKit example,
select non-editable text, invoke its "Capitalize String" service, observe the
selected text gets capitalized.

This doesn't persist, of course, and doesn't really appear to do any sort of
harm. But perhaps it indicates there's some other potentially problematic issue
related to changing text that shouldn't be changeable.
