Thank you for noticing this. I have added some more comments why we need the
leftmost position to fix this issue.

Oops, I forgot changing the file permission and line-endings when I copied this
file from Windows. I have changed them to remove this property.

Thank you for your comments. I tend to write more garbage comments when I'm
less confident of it. I deleted some garbage comments in my previous change.
Nevertheless, I'm still not so confident of this change because 'offsetLeft'
values are not so consistent among browsers and I'm not sure what values I
should rely on. (This change makes Safari look similar with other browsers,
