Description mitz 2005-12-29 16:56:23 PST
The following layout tests are failing in TOT due to firstCharacterForRange(0, 0) returning a 0x0 rect:

It looks like a regression from fixing bug 6246.

band-aid fix

Looks like an indirect result of issues described in bug 5610: the range
returned for (0, 0) in these tests is (#text, 1)-(#text,1) rather than (#text,
0)-(#text,0) - and the latter or equivalent don't give correct results in
firstRectForDOMRange (which may be a separate issue). Going to cleanup this
further as part of the investigation on 5610...

r=me, looks like an ok fix for now if it gets the tests passing and doesn't break anything.
