If I copy text from OS X and paste it into SheepShaver (e.g. in HyperCard or SimpleText), it ends up completely messed up. The line height appears to be about a mile, black text becomes green and the font is undefined (even though the text I'm copying is simple black 10pt Monaco). This smells like another endianness problem. Do people who run SheepShaver on PPC Macs have the same problem?

Edit: I tried this myself on my thrusty old iBook and indeed, there the problem doesn't exist. My guess is that the contents of the clipboard are just copied between OS X and SheepShaver, and on Intel-based Macs this corrupts any endianness-sensitive information (like text styles). I guess this won't be easy to fix because it will require looking into the data types of what's in the clipboard. Maybe it would be simpler to include an option to only share basic information like raw text.

OK, I've fixed this for styled text only (it will be properly swapped).
