There are 2 things that I am trying to separate:
1. the item being dragged and dropped (the drag & drop item), and
2. the item being dropped upon (the dropzone)
Now, the dropzone can be lost of things in an HTML form, so I would
like to know where the d&d-item is dropped upon FROM the d&d-item. But
I can't even get it to tell that has just been dropped!
So this DOESN'T work for me:
<label ondragdrop="alert('I am being dropped')"
