assigned to brade, since it's a mac-only bug.  kathy, can you see what's going
on here?  all the code involved on the content and layout side is XP, the only
platform code involved here is rendering (I think.)  cc'ing the other editor
macheads in case anybody knows anything about this.
Chris, do you see this in all text controls, or just this one simple test case?
This looks fine to me in a build from yesterday.
Oh, I do see this now, even in the editor init page. It looks like we're getting
one char extra from somewhere.
Oh, these symbols are showing up elsewhere too. See the mail start page for an
example. I think someone in layout left in some debug code.
Aha! these are non-breaking spaces showing up. See the editor init page for
examples.

Kipp owned up to causing this. Reassigning.
This sounds like an encoding problem to me.

I still see this bug on Mac.
It no longer appears in the editor window but it does appear in each empty input
textfield.
