    • If the first character is selected when I hit Backspace, the previous sibling of contenteditable is also removed from the DOM; elements outside contenteditable should not be affected.
      If I “select all” inside contenteditable and hit Backspace/Delete, even the contenteditable itself is also removed from the DOM!

    • Following the link in "Steps to reproduce", if I go in front of “T” and hit Delete, some weird spaces are inserted and still the first space cannot be "backspaced".
