From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.2+) Gecko/20010708 BuildID: 2001070808 When using a font which does not have a bold version, and using <strong>, Windows (or the GTK) simulates the bold by drawing the text twice, offset by 1px presumably. However selection of the emboldened-text causes the surrounding text to jitter a bit, presumably because of the 1px miscalculation somewhere. Try the testcase, using the font "Arial Black" or any font without a bold counterpart. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Load attached testcase (is HTML 4.01 compliant <g>) 2.Select some text 3.Watch the text Actual Results: Jitter Expected Results: No jitter

Christopher, this works for me on WinXP. I have Arial Black and have no bold version of it. Still no jitter. Do you still see this?
Can't reproduce. Probably fixed now. Let's close and clean up. (It's been 3 years!)
