I cannot edit text in HTML view because there's no way to
know where the cursor is and whether the change has actually taken
place. When I highlight text in HTML view by clicking and dragging,
as I slide the cursor over to either the right or the left the text
is displaced as if the cursor was using magnetic polarity to scoot
the letters away from it. If I select text by double-clicking then
the word will highlight--but for example the last character will be
highlighted and moved halfway across the line, or some other
similar inexplicable crazy effect. I can't reliably put the cursor
This curious sliding around only happens in HTML view. In
Design view, the text, specifically the leading, is only grossly
inaccurate and is most pronounced with ligatures.

I've run Adobe's RH7 installer and repaired RH7 and then used

corrupt file somewhere that the installer would not have deleted
that I should manually delete?
