I have had occasion to edit wikis using NetSurf and also to fill in
text boxes provided on websites for messages.
Unless I have missed something, some of the RISC OS UI conventions
cease to apply within such editable boxes making them more difficult
to edit than expected.
So I have put a new item on the SourceForge Feature Requests tracker
as detailed below.
Is there support for such improvement?

Wiki editing support
In a typical wiki editing window (and in any input area such as this
one), highlighting text can only be done by select-drag and is only
useful for exporting the text.
To assist editing content (and especially for deleting text) we need
* Select...Adjust to highlight text, and double-click select to
highlight a word.
* Ctrl-X, ctrl-C, ctrl-V, Delete (for more than one character) and
Insert to be supported within the edit window.
