      Description

      The following method:
      http://download.java.net/jdk7/docs/api/javax/swing/plaf/basic/BasicTextUI.html#getVisibleEditorRect()

      protected Rectangle getVisibleEditorRect()

      Contains the following statements in the spec:

          ... Due to an unfortunate set of historical events this method is inappropriately named. The Rectangle returned has nothing to do with visibility ...


      I believe the same idea should be rephrased in a more neutral and technical way.
