There don't seem to be any cursor keys on the keyboard. If you want to correct a typo you seem to have to backspace over other text to get to where you want to be or try to reposition the cursor with your finger (which is not very precise) Have I missed something?
Put your finger on the text where you want the cursor to be, hold it for a sec. or two and a magnifying glass will appear.
Now you can adjust the position of the cursor more precise.
Thanks that's the sort of thing that I was looking for. It seems to work quite well.
Except when it doesn't. I find about 75% of the time I cannot get the cursor to select the correct text. This is the biggest issue I have with the iPad.

I have't experienced that problem yet. For years I have that Windows (I think with Word in particular), accurate text selection can also be an issue.
Another place where you need cursors are on web based text boxes. I have found several places where the safari browser does not give you a scroll bar and there is no way to choose a text that is not in the visible part of the text box. This happens when I try to edit blog post in word press. Makes it really almost impossible to edit my blog on an ipad.
