           Summary: Specify extend method for Selection objects
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All

            Status: NEW

Recent versions of Mozilla, WebKit and Opera all include an extend() method of
their Selection objects, implemented (as far as I can tell) identically. I
suggest HTML5 should specify this method, for two reasons:

1. It is a de facto standard among the more standards-compliant browsers
2. Vitally, it provides a mechanism for programmatically creating a backwards
(i.e. where the focus point comes before the anchor point within the document)
selection, which otherwise can be created by the user by dragging "backwards"
but not programmatically.
