1. load this link in a browser.

"In two specific segments, Intel-based servers and Unix servers, IBM and Dell
also gained.

In Intel servers, where IBM remains the third-ranked seller"
3. Ctrl + C to copy the text.
4. File | Send page to bring mail compose page
5. Paste the text _above_ the link that appears in msg body.
6. Again select the just pasted content. Hit Ctrl + I to make it italic.
7. Place the cursor at the end of the content. In this case after "seller". Hit
8. Type some more stuff using the keyboard. it appears in Italic by default. Try
to undo/reset the Italics. I cannot rest it.

Sigh ... bugzilla lost my comments the first time.  Trying again ...

Here's a much easier way to reproduce a problem that may or may not be the same
problem suresh is reporting -- I'm not sure.

1. Get an editor window with a blank line followed by a link.
2. Copy the specified text from the url, and paste it into the blank line.
3. Press the I (italic) button and type some stuff.  Notice that the I button is
not depressed even though new text appears in italic.
4. Now try to get out of italic mode.  Pressing I again doesn't work;
discontinue text style doesn't work either.

Suresh: is this the same problem you were reporting?
Charley: shouldn't I appear pressed, since we're in italic mode, even though the
selection is collapsed?  It's confusing not being able to see what mode we're in.
Joe: Is this an edit rules issue at all, or more a UI issue?
Akkana: I can't reproduce your test case.

Argh.  Now I can't either.  There must have been something special about the
br-and-link that I pasted before, and now I can't find a combination that does
it.  If I see it again, I'll note the steps.
