DESCRIPTION
When a portion of the text is highlighted, and the mose button is then released,
more text continues to be highlighted as the mouse is moved up and down the
page.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Go to the URL http://www.rhodes.ac.za/help/about/
2. Somewhere in the middle of the page is a section entitled "Webmasters".  Find
this section.
3. Move your mouse pointer to the first line of the paragraph below
"Webmasters".  This paragraph begins with "There is additional important
information for anyone responsible".
4. Click and hold down your left moue button when your pointer is between the
words "important" and "information".  DRAG the mouse pointer to the right and
down until your pointer is situated to the right of the word "pages.", on the
next line.
5. Let go of the mouse button.
6. Move the mouse up and down the page, not holding down the left mouse button.

ACTUAL RESULTS
More text on the page is highlighted.

EXPECTED RESULTS
The additional text should not have been highlighted.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

occurs when you start highlighting from any word in the paragraph and end off
past the "pages." end of paragraph....
