data:text/html,<!doctype html>
<div contenteditable=true>
<span contenteditable=false>bar</span>

It should be specified that you can't move the cursor into the word "bar".  Browsers seem to already do this in this particular case, but I received a report that not all of them do it in all cases.

(In the long run, this needs to be solved by specifying Selection.modify() and requiring it to behave the same as various keystrokes.)
