I need an architecture and implementation for focus, particularly finding the focused text widget, in seamonkey. Currently event dispatch is done using mouse coordinates assoicated with a particular event; however, not all text input events (like the ones used for input methods) are associated with a mouse coordinate. In order to proceed on implementing input methods for the Macintosh and UNIX, we need to have an architecture and implementation of focus. We also need focus so that we can finalize design issues with the editor team. Please read: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/intl/input-method-spec.html for details on input methods and how we plan to support them. Please contact me for more details and specifics about the requirements.

You can now observe the focused text widget. Marking fixed.
code level fix, marking verified.
Tague, Any feedback on this? Do you have what you need now?
