Details

After clicking on a link in the editor, focus issues prevent selection from
showing up; selection outside the link no longer appears to do anything.

coincidentally, I sent a note to the newsgroup yesterday asking about this very
issue:

sometime in the recent past, links became focus-able in the editor.  I
don't think this behavior makes sense, since our model is that the link
acts like inline styles.

I noticed that nsHTMLAnchorElement::SetFocus calls
nsIEventStateManager::SetContentState unconditionally, whereas
nsHTMLAnchorElement::HandleDOMEvent only calls it if there is a link
handler (the editor has no link handler.)  This seems inconsistent.

----------------
I'll try adding the null link handler check and see if that makes this work
right.
