The cursor doesn't seem to react in an absolute manner to the user will. When clicking on a line, you find the cursor the line below or above. Selecting text is not easy. As this happens both on my Mac and on my Linux station, I think it is not platform related.

I know it is a very good way to get people to have good working habits, forcing users to make an extensive use of stylesheet... And I know that the Text Editor exists especially for that. But not all tasks can be achieved through the Text Editor. So, I think that this area needs improvement!

There are fixes needed, but as of last night's CVS there are some nice
cursor location fixes, especially for justified text.
