Thanks to Cyphre and everyone else who came forward to help with my question. Looks like the clipboard is text only, at least in the current release. Of course it would be extremely useful, and very Rebol-like, if I could pump images (and possibly other things) down it. I'll drop a line to feedback --Colin.
