           Summary: Double click to select word + arrow key movement
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jparent at google.com

To repro:
1. Pick your favorite editable region (rich text, text area, text input)
2. Enter some text (like "foo bar baz")
3. Double inside "bar" to select the word
4. shift + left arrow to move the selection

Result: Sometimes, moves the start of the selection one space to the left,
expanding the selection by one character.  Other times, collapses the selection
down to the middle of the word where you had originally double clicked, and
then moves one space from there, giving a selection with a single char
selected.  I can't really figure out how to repro one way or another, but they
both happen consistently.

Expected Result: First, consistency.  Second, both IE and FF will move the end
of the selection, rather than the start.  Would be nice to be consistent with
them. (Unless you are in left to right mode, where it moves the start).

This info is all based off of Windows - Chrome, Safari 3.1, IE 7, FF 3.  I'm
told that the Safari Mac behavior is slightly different.
