Thank you.

In some browsers, including IE and FF, the trick is to set the value of the
element after setting the cursor. The cursor will then be moved with it as
the new value is written and end up at the end...

tt.focus(); tt.value = tt.value;

Otherwise, you will need to manipulate text selection ranges, which is a
pain to do crossbrowser.

When you set focus to the text field, it launches a custom event handler to process the existing value in that text field. Well after the onBlur function has completed, the cursor looks like it's not there, almost as if it didn't set focus to the text field you were currently on. ...
