           Summary: REGRESSION: Visual highlighting of pre-populated blank
                    line in textarea is broken
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: HasReduction, Regression, NeedsRadar
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ddkilzer at webkit.org


When a <textarea> element is pre-populated with content, and that content
includes blank lines, it's not possible to see the entire blank highlighted
until the next character is selected.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Safari/WebKit.
2. Open test case (to be posted soon).
3. Tab into the textarea after the page loads.  (Not required; you may click
the mouse to get an insertion pointer on the first line.)
4. Hold down the shift key, then hit the down arrow once.

Expected results:

The entire first line of the textarea should be highlighted because it's blank.

Actual results:

Nothing on the first line is highlighted.


This is a regression from shipping Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) on Mac OS X 10.4.9

Tested with a local debug build of WebKit r20375 with the above software.


- The content is actually selected, but the highlight doesn't paint correctly.
- Deleting the pre-populated content and retyping it will make the blank line
