I have a document I converted from word to html - however the people who write these converters discard at least 50% of the formatting that existed in the original document so I have to go through and massage all 60 pages of the resultant html.
I see a < p > ..... that needs to be centered so i edit it to become < p text-align = "center" > and then mark from the space after the p all the way to the > and hit ^c. I now have two cursors. I hit escape to get rid of the second cursor that should never have materialized, move to the next < p > that needs to be centered and hit ^v and again I now have two cursors. Every time i copy/paste a new cursor appears.
