Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

1. Ask Question
2. Input "bug" and space
3. Input "stack" and select "stackoverflow"

Expected: "bug stackoverflow"
Current: "stackoverflow stack"

Under IE 7

Depends on the browser. IE and Opera don't provide adequate JavaScript control over the caret in a textbox, from my understanding. Can't be "fixed" for that reason.

(works OK in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.)

Also related to whether you select with keyboard or mouse. AFAIK workaround is to use the keyboard for input on tags field.
