Putting the same node with different offset works for me (this works  
in setBaseAndExtent but not with the range object in mozilla) if I  
use different (incremental) offset values.
For example:

 >>  window.getSelection().setBaseAndExtent(selDiv, 0, selDiv, 1);		// 
Same node, different offsets.

Gives the same result as the published example.
