           Summary: execCommand justify modifies the contentEditable node
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.nick-santos.com/tests/justify_command.html
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: nicksantos at google.com

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create a contentEditable field with some text, and no display: block
2) In javascript, call document.execCommand("justifyRight", false)

Expected Result:
A block-level element should be created around the text with style='text-align:
right'. IE creates a <p> element.

Actual Result:
The contentEditable element has style='text-align: right.'

As a general principle, execCommand should *never* modify the attributes of a
node with contentEditable on. There are all sorts of reasons why this is bad:
it may change the layout of the field itself, it makes it more difficult to get
the contents of the field, etc.
