    I have noticed a new behavior in the editor in IE while upgrading to the latest version (2014.1.403). If you add certain styles (width, height, float, maybe others) to a block element (div, p, h1, etc), you can no longer select text in that element with the mouse. You can select the element itself, which is displayed with a border and handles, but not the content inside it. The keyboard works fine, but the mouse does not.

    You can see this on your demo site. Go to the html tab, modify the opening p tag to include 'width:300px;' in the style, and go back to the design tab. Try to use the mouse to select some text.

    The previous version I was using was 2013.2.717. No problem there.

    The problem happens in all versions of IE. It seems to work properly in Firefox and Chrome.
