Using the Moodle VLE, I am trying to copy and paste from openoffice to a textarea element. The textarea is controlled by a javascript WYSIWYG editor, htmlarea. The result of pasting from openoffice (spreadsheet or text) is that the expected pasted text fails to appear. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an openoffice document. 
2. Select and copy some text
3. Go here
4. Paste in the text - it does not appear. 
Actual Results:  
The copied text is not pasted into the textarea. 

Expected Results:  
The copied text should appear in the textarea. 

This is not a problem with Firefox  3.0.6.
