Comment:
setRangeText() issues: Step 6, s/selection start/start/ s/selection end/end/.
Step 8, "select" selectMode, s/selection end be end/selection end be the
length of the value of the first argument/, similar issue in selectMode "end".

Also, on step 5 of selectMode "preserve":

[[
Otherwise: if selection end is greater than start, then set it to end.
]]

Seems the final "end" should be "start + replacement.length()".

(Basically, it looks like "end" is generally confused to mean the end of the
replacement string, instead of the end index of what's meant to be replaced.)
