dojox/trunk/form/uploader/plugins/HTML5.js uses the method File.getAsBinary() on line 170, which is depricated/non-standard now.

Thanks Simon, I appreciate any extra knowledge for file inputs since general information is so sparse. But that section was meant to be temporary all along to work with FF3.X. As of 4.0, it's going to use the other section (which currently supports Webkit) for FormData?(), which works well and is very versatile for handling not just the file but the entire form in which the file input may reside.

More good info on wrappers. We should be safe though - the enctype is only necessary if doing a traditional non-ajax page/form post. And I of course tested that, and it works (and doesn't work without it). For Ajax-posts, the data is pulled out of the form and sent via xhr.
