           Summary: Absolute positioned elements in designedMode are still
                    in the DOM flow
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jaroslav.benc at gmail.com

Not sure if this is a bug, but works well in Firefox - when there is an
absolute positioned element in the document (designMode='on') this element is
accessible via navigation keys moving caret. So let say we have this example
from my online editor:

<div class="line-numbers-absolute"></div>
<span class="line-relative">some text line1</span>

in editor you can see this:
some text line1

so if the caret is in the beginning of the text and left arrow is pressed caret
jumps somewhere into absolutely positioned div (line numbers). Firefox works
well so I think they deal with key navigation according to the DOM flow. Seems
like webkit deal with key navigation via HTML. 

I've found some JS workaround, but it's not very pretty and I think it'd be
good to think about this so it's same in all browsers.
