A text range has two end points. One end point is located at the beginning of the text range, and the other is located at the end of the text range. An end point also can be characterized as the position between two characters in an HTML document.
There are four possible end points in the following HTML:
The possible end points are:
- Before the letter a.
- Between the letters a and b.
- Between the letters b and c.
- After the letter c.
This method might not be available on non-Microsoft Win32 platforms.
As of Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0, an end point is relative to text only, not HTML tags.
