This isn't true, whether you move the cursor with the mouse
or with control sequences such as Ctrl-N, the marked text
remains marked. It becomes unmarked if you enter text or
if you save the marked text with Ctrl-W.

This is also false. I am looking at a page where there is marked text,
and the cursor is also visible, and in a different location.
