Hi,

In Amaya 9.52 for Windows XP, changing the cursor position using arrow 
keys does not work properly, but it is not easy to report bugs because 
the wrong behaviour is often erratic (sometimes it happens, sometimes 
not). I think I have found an example that you can reproduce.

Create the following source code (a two-cells table with a div in one of 
them and two paragraphs before and after the table):

<p>First paragraph</p>

<table border="1">
   <caption></caption>
   <tbody>
     <tr>
       <td>First cell</td>
       <td>Second cell

         <div>
         <p>A div</p>
         </div>
       </td>
     </tr>
   </tbody>
</table>

<p>Last paragraph</p>

Now, place the cursor in the first cell (for example, between "First" 
and "cell" and press the down key several times: the cursor never exits 
from the table (it goes from the second cell into the first, then into 
the second, etc).

But, if you place the cursor in the paragraph before the table, press 
the Home key and then the down key several times, the movement is 
correct and the cursor exits from the table.

Best regards,
