I asked about this in #webkit. I was having trouble getting
event.dataTransfer.getData('text/html') in a drop event, apparently it is not
available. Basically I'm left with either text/plain or parsing text/rtf (the
former allowing for no handling of html structure at all, the latter being
generally inaccurate for anything as simple as even a structure like
<li><a>[text]<br>[text]</a></li> (the rtf format treats the <br> as closing the
anchor and list item and opening a new set), making parsing rtf not very useful
to try to discern the html structure of a drop.
