Overview Description: 
  Selection does not appear to work fully when attempting to select content
  that is part of the anonymous content of an XBL binding. (This is for 
  future consideration, as there is no UI requirement for NS6 to have this
  work, as far as I know).   

Steps to Reproduce: 
1) Load
2) Use the left mouse to select the text "A table with a single cell".
3) Now right click to get a context menu over the selection, and then 
   do a right click elsewhere in the page.

Actual Results: 
  at 2) the selected text is not highlighted 
  at 3) portions in the lower half of the line-height are shown in 
        highlight (on windows); no change on mac or linux
Expected Results: 
  at 2) the selected text is highlighted
  at 3) the selected text is highlighted

Reproducibility: always 

Build Date & Platform Bug Found: 
  20000908nn win32/mac/linux

Additional Information: 
  from n.p.m.xpfe

    Not sure if it's been filed yet, but selection seems to be confused when
    it comes to anonymous content.  Probably a bug for mjudge.

John, we think so alike it's scary.  I also just read this post.  I also was 
just about to file a bug.

See also bug 48346, a similar problem I reported also concerning the XBL 
testcases and anonymous content.

I'm seeing some really wonky selection stuff in an XBL article on Netscape
DevEdge ( Am I
seeing this bug, or is this something different?

Using 2001101808 on SuSE Linux.
