Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

  1. Load attached sample file (standard HTML5 page with table. Table has attribute align="right" and body has attribute contenteditable="true").
  2. Click inside table.
  3. Set language in Operating System (I have used Windows 7) to Japanese and Input Mode to Hiragana.
  4. Try typing き (‘ki’ on Latin keyboard) into one of table cells.
    Result: Character k is typed inside the table cell. When you press ‘i’ however focus is moved to the body.

This problem occurs only in IE11 and only when table is aligned to right.

Expected Results:

It should be possible to type two-byte characters inside table aligned to the right which is located inside body with attribute contenteditable="true".

Actual Results:
