Re: problem filling out web form


You are talking about the editor being used, evidently.  When I encounter an editor that has this problem, I type and review my comment in Notepad, copy it to the clipboard, then paste it into the edit field on the web site.

A little more info.  The problem I described does not occur with
firefox.  Having to use the escape to get the next edit box to read is
not a big issue but when you are typing in a large comment as part of
the web form and you can not review what you have typed is a real problem.
