Description

Mozilla Build #2000082108 for Mac:

1. Launch Editor, bringing up a new blank page.
2. Click in the large gray text input area, so that the formatting toolbar
buttons become enabled.
3. Select "Bold" from the Formatting Toolbar and type some chars.  The typed
text will appear bold.
4. Select "Italics" from the Formatting Toolbar and type some chars.  The text
will appear bold and italicized.
5. Select "Bold" again, this time turning it off.  Type some more chars.  The
typed text appears plain (no bold/italics) and "Italics" turns off, even though
you did not turn it off.

Expected Result: The typed text would remain non-bold but still italicized.

This "forgetting of text style state" occurs with all three styles (including
underline), and the above example is just one test case.  Generally, it appears
that turning one style on after typing with another style on, then turning the
first style off, turns all styles off.

This occurs on both Mac and Windows

assigning to jfrancis for review. Joe, you probably have other open issues that 
would resolve the noted problem here, can you either dup or nominate?
