      Whatever Notetab does or doesn't do with the cursor while
      text is defined, the underlying Windows practice is to
      leave the cursor position undefined while text is selected.
      (It was probably programmed that way to emulate the Mac,
      originally).

      All that's definitive is that the cursor position is more
      or less <the whole of the selection>. If, after selecting
      some text, be it manually or automatically, you then press
      the left cursor key, you go to the beginning of the
      selection. And vice versa.

      Concurrently, any keyboard entry deselects. As does a
      left click on the mouse. Alternatively, if it's a textual
      key (including <end of paragraph> or Enter, Tab etc.), the
      key entered replaces the selection.

      It follows that a clip, after finding text, has to take
      some action merely to make the cursor position definitive.
