           Summary: Double click does not select word if word contains ­
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://thias.absyrde.net/share/shy_bug.html
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: Matthias.Wiesmann at gmail.com

Overview Description:

Using Safari/Webkit on Mac OS X 10.5, when one double clicks in a word that
contains the soft-hyphenation mark (­), the whole word is not selected,
instead only the text until the soft-hyphen is selected.

The fact a word contains such marks should not affect the GUI behaviour.
Safari's behaviour is inconsistent with other Mac OS X applications like
TextEdit.app. If the text is copy-pasted into TextEdit.app, the soft-hyphens
are still recognised, but double-clicking anywhere selects the whole word. 

Steps to reproduce

1) Open http://thias.absyrde.net/share/shy_bug.html in Safari
2) Double click on the 'r' of procrastinate

Expected result: The whole word (procrastinate) selected.

Actual Results: Only the first syllable (until the first ­ mark) is

Build Date & Platform: This bug is present in build r35177
