Description Jayakrishnan 2010-02-07 22:56:12 PST
Text typed inside a <textarea> looks garbled (i.e., some kind of painting issue upon typing inside the textarea, when the space key is pressed 
the typed word appears properly). The textarea is positioned "absolute" inside a container whose position is "relative".

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Open the attached safari.html file in Safari.

2. Scroll the container such that the textarea inside scrolls to view.

3. Focus the textarea and type some text. You can see the text is garbled and becomes normal after sometime.

Is there any fix available for this issue?

My system configuration is Mac OS X 10.5.8 and Safari is 4.0.2. The same issue is reproducible in Windows Safari.

Can i know the reason for "HasReduction" keyword being assigned? coz the issue is easily reproducible in Safari.

Also, its been acknowledged it here...

HasReduction simply means there is a reduced test case that demonstrates the issue. Thank you for that.

I can't recreate this on Chrome with WebKit r146919. Are you still seeing the issue in Safari?
