Description

In the visual editor, pressing ⌫ (Erase) 3 times erases 4 characters.

Safari on iOS 8.2 on iPad in landscape.

I go to fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montréal.
I click modifier.
I get the Web visual editor.
I edit the article...

There is the text :

Bla bla bla bla bla bli blu blou blou bla bla bla la température est de 4 bloum bloum bloum.

There is a space before "de" and "4". But "de" happens to be at the end of a line, so a soft line break occurs before the "4".

I click after "de".
I press ⌫ 3 times.

Expected result :
This erases 3 characters. I end up with "est 4".

Actual result :
This erases 4 characters. I end up with "est4".

Thank you for fixing this bug.
