I can edit the text in the span with contentEditable='True' if I do not have a span prior to it... but if I have <span></span> prior to it, the first character is un-deletable (and it moves the element to the right with each press of the delete or backspace key). This only happens in Firefox.

Can anyone explain?

It is suggested to use table to edit contents if you are using DIV OR SPAN tags, Here is the link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537837.aspx


This code ll work.
Also,
There is some problem in using "contenteditable" with FF; This sounds like an bug, and detail discussion could be found here:
