This just came in handy. Suppose you managed to get a typo stuck in a form field … like this, say:

I accidentally mis-typed 'Sanitarians' once, and now I get the misspelled suggestion

It would be useful to delete the mis-typed word. The solution on a compact Mac keyboard (like the built-in keyboard on a MacBook Pro), via J. Random Stack Overflow page, is to select the mis-typed item and hit Fn+Shift+Backspace.

You … are welcome.
