I should have qualified that: that is not the way Mac OS X Leopard (10.5)
works, but I was told that it matches Tiger's (10.4) behavior.

I think WebKit's current behavior is the worst possible. A patch that
implemented the Firefox/Tiger behavior would be an improvement and would be
useful for the Mac port, at least for the Tiger build; a patch that implemented
"visual" selection would be better for current Mac OS X versions, and could
also be used on Tiger.
