In other browsers, modifying/focusing a textarea places the input cursor at the end of the textarea. Safari puts it at the beginning.
* STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Open the attached test case in Safari.
Safari places the input cursor at the beginning of the textarea, instead of the end of the text area as Firefox does.
<textarea id="test">Click the button below</textarea>
<input type="button" value="Click me" onclick="document.getElementById('test').focus();">

We match MSIE here. IIRC, we have tried to switch to Firefox behavior a while ago, but this has caused problems with Outlook Web Access.
