.htmltext singleline lost

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]I’m running into a problem (well, one of many) with a dynamic text control which uses htmltext to format the text the user is putting in. the problem is that when the control is clicked on, often times the curser will display AFTER the content on a new line. ( after the closing </p> in the htmltext )

several problems present themselves from this.

  1. if the control is only one line tall, any text in the box appears to go POOF (when in fact, hitting the up arrow will show the text again)
  2. since this position in the textfield has no formatting, the user is lead to believe that their formatting is lost. however any formatting changes are ignored if the user attempts to make changes in this deadzone.

has anyone run into this, and if so, did you solve the issue?
