Small improvement to cursor positioning

The new cursor positioning on switching from normal to HTML view is a welcome change. However I find it visually distracting because the actual position of the cursor changes on screen, being positioned at the bottom.

An improvement would be to keep the cursor "as close as possible" to its physical location in the other view. So if the cursor is 200px down from the top of the screen in normal when you switch to HTML, instead of scrolling to place the cursor at the bottom of the screen, scroll to place it at 100px down. This will stop the "snapping" effect.

And of course, that should be 200px, not 100px.

interesting. I'm not sure if it's possible but we'll keep it in mind.
