Default Bold problem in vB Code

If I type sequentially and use the vB Code to put words in bold, it works fine. But if I return to halfway through the text to add a sentence, then try to use vB Code, it throws the bold text to the end of the post!

All the buttons above the edit page insert the code at the end of your message (at least for me). Then you have to select it and drag it to where you want it (windoz users may have to copy & paste the code, then delete the original).

It threw me off at 1st too, but i adapted.

I don't know that it is wrong, i just assummed that that was how it was. On the Mac the fix is real easy (i couldn't live without drag n drop editing -- is that supported at the OS level in Windoz?)

Yes, Windoze can drag and drop at this level. But it shouldn't have to. The vB Code should return to the cursor, not the end of text. It's a small thing, but it is irritating.
