Occurs before the selection is cut from the document and added to the clipboard.
In Internet Explorer, the oncut event occurs on the deepest element in the DOM hierarchy that contains the entire selection.
In Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari, the oncut event occurs on the deepest element in the DOM hierarchy that contains the start point of the selection.
If the oncut event is canceled, the contents of the current selection will not be cutted and placed on the clipboard.
Canceling the oncut event clears the clipboard in Google Chrome and Safari.
If you need access to the clipboard, use the clipboardData object in Internet Explorer.
If you need a cross-browser solution to manipulate the contents of the clipboard, see the page for the clipboardData object.
The event object is accessible to all event handlers in all browsers.
The properties of the event object contain additional information about the current event.
To get further details about these properties and the possible event handler registration methods, please see the page for the event object.

returnfalse; // cancels the oncut event
