Comment:
The DOM interface for the INPUT element have the properties 'selectionStart'
and 'selectionEnd'.

The opposite of the word 'start' is the word 'stop'.
The opposite of the word 'begin' is the word 'end'.

But the standard mixes the word 'start' with the word 'end'.

The properties should be named 'selectionStart' and 'selectionStop' or
'selectionBegin' and 'selectionEnd'.
