           Summary: "Delete the contents" has to be rewritten to delete
                    the selection

Currently the "delete the contents" algorithm deletes any old range it's given.
 Every caller except delete/forwardDelete actually deletes the active range. 
The problem with deleting non-active ranges is it doesn't update the selection
correctly.  Example: calling delete on




in the current spec because the selection doesn't get moved. 
delete/forwardDelete can maybe be changed to change the selection before
deleting.  Or maybe there's some other fix that's better.

(This is a minor bug in the current spec, not an issue implementers have to
worry about.)
