Patch to use renderer string instead of DOM string

Description Andrew Wellington 2005-06-10 23:20:14 PDT
When copying text that has been transformed using the text-transform CSS1 property, the 
transformations are not applied to the copied text.

This can be reproduced by copying transformed text from the regression test:

For example, what is displayed as:
This Paragraph Is Capitalized
is copied as:
This paragraph is capitalized

This has been fixed in Konqueror

TextIterator is the thing that would need to be changed, in visible_text.h/cpp.

Patch to use renderer string instead of DOM string

Modify visible_text.cpp to use the string from the renderer not the DOM in
handleTextNode and handleTextBox

Patch to use renderer string instead of DOM string

This looks like the right fix. But we also need a test to check in at the same
time. I'm going to set this to review-, but it should be set to review+ once we
have a suitable test.

Two ways to write the test: 1) Use the "innerText" method. 2) Use execCommand("PasteAndMatchStyle") to 
make a test that will work in DumpRenderTree, although not in Safari.

(Because the innerText method shares the same code path with copy.)
