           Summary: Meta-B and Meta-I events cannot be received by
                    JavaScript in editor mode.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: martin at fckeditor.net

When editor mode is enabled, it is impossible to receive the keydown events of
Meta-B and Meta-I in JavaScript. This is a serious problem for implementing web
based editors because it is often desirable to implement custom logic for the
hotkeys instead of always following the browser's default.

To reproduce the issue:
1. Open the attached HTML test case.
2. Click in the iframe area, a caret should appear indicating the area is
3. Press any Meta combination that's not Meta-I or Meta-B, the correct keycode
should be printed out in the editing area.
4. Press Meta-I or Meta-B, the keycode is not printed out indicating the
JavaScript logic failed to receive the events.
