           Summary: Feature request: element.replaceSelection(str) should
                    change the text field's value by replacing the current
                    selection with the provided string, which should then
                    be the new selection.  This is apparently supported
                    well in IE's proprietary equivalent, and

Comment:
Feature request: element.replaceSelection(str) should change the text field's
value by replacing the current selection with the provided string, which
should then be the new selection.  This is apparently supported well in IE's
proprietary equivalent, and a MediaWiki developer pointed it out as one of the
significant problems he ran into with the standard approach:

eature_requests#Changing_the_text_contents_of_a_range I think this is simple
enough to spec before implementation, if implementers are interested, to avoid
the whole vendor prefix rigamarole.
