If you highlight some text you can then drag the text to the Personal Toolbar
Folder and this creates a link.
This is only be allowed if the text looks like a link ala http:// or ftp://

Currently I can highlight the text "gemal" and drag it to the Personal Toolbar
Folder and create a link that points to "http://gemal"
This seems just wrong.

yep, I also see this with build 2001062004 on Win2k (SP2).

Does seem a bit useless to allow it, but it doesn't hurt a whole lot.  It would
be nice for polish, though.

DnD isn't enabled on all platforms iirc so please don't report bugs as All/All 
unless you actually reproduced as such.

Confirmed in 2001071208 Mac trunk build.
Once those text are Drag and Dropped, the items can not be deleted. This is bad.
Even worse, texts can be drag and dropped from other applications in the case of
OS: Windows 2000 → All
Hardware: PC → All

confirming with 2002060208 win2k, but is this a bug or a feature ?

Confirmed Win2K 20020826 - but it doesn't seem like a very useful feature to me,
having a link which goes nowhere. Also in my browser, it is possible to drag any
text, whether it looks like a link or not, and that creates an entry on the bar,
with no title.

IMO the function should simply do what it's told to do and not second guess whether it's a valid URL - URLs are too varied these days to make a useful guess (and that's all it would be  - a guess)

back peddling a second - in fact ignore what I said.

Using bookmark manager, if you supply a location of say xxx.yyy and click OK then manager often prepends the http:// for you.  IMO d&d text should behave as if you typed it into manager and do all the same checks and changes and additions.

OTOH, requiring http:// in the text of what is copied greatly limits the usefulness of the D&D function.  it's not like most examples of where this would be used that provider of the information (which is obviously plain text) will have included http:// ... and further, as noted above, bookmark manager doesn't require the user to provide it.
