Cursor issues

  1. hi, i have a problem that came recently. i noticed it while writing in forums and while writing in ICQ. the problem is that the cursor that blinks when you write in a text box, is too far from where it should be. this is very problematic to me because i write in hebrew , and then insted of appearng at the end of the letter, the cursor appears in the middle of the letter. look at these few pictres and tell me wether you know this problem or a way to handle it, thank you so much

    ps.
    this doesnt happen in windows text boxes or in live messenger text boxes.

    Zounds ! I think you have answered your own question. No problem with standard Windows and certain other software, but ICQ (only?). Clearly the problem lies with their software and it's implementation of standard text boxes. You have nothing you can do about it except complain to the vendors - they may not even be aware of the problem.

    Alternatively, if you could try other hebrew fonts.....

    Ahh ! Well, certainly IE8 has so far earned an unenviable reputation as being a complete dud. Can you not reinstall IE7? or better still use someone else's such as Avant browser, Opera, Mozilla firefox, etc

    With an attitude like yours, I feel no incentive to help you
