I noticed it when using a n absolutly positioned <img> with CSS properties set to allow a stretched background image (if anyone wants to implement this properly for the background css property...I'd be very happy :oD ). I then noticed that the text caret for the form elements dissappeared. I tried changing the <img> to a <div>, and even without the image, the same problem manifests itself (I also turned on text caret browsing (F7) and the same problem is observed). I have made a simplified test case that you can easily view the problem with. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the url given above 2. Type in the text fields, observing the lack of caret 3. Move to a text field below the image, and observe the caret. Scroll the contents and observe the caret dissappearing as it touches the image, whilst the text box is otherwise displaysd correctly. Actual Results: The caret dissappears behind the backgroup element. Expected Results: Placed the caret at the z-index of the respective element, or at the very least above all other elements.
