Start typing some text in demo. Switch to some style that is actually span (Marker-green for one), type more, switch to Marker-yellow, type more, switch to Marker-green again - type and see that text continue to be yellow. So we can't swith to the first applied style when continue typing.

Want to note that on safari such changing of styles or even swithching to bold/italic while typing doesn't wark at all. But it seems to be another bug

FYI. For myself I did some crude fixes. In my case I only have paragraph and span css styles and bold/itaic and I want span styles not merged but separated so for me works the following code (ff, ie):

	_ApplyInlineStyle : function( range, selectIt, updateRange )
		var doc = range.Window.document ;
		if ( range.CheckIsCollapsed() )
			// Create the element to be inserted in the DOM.
			var collapsedElement = this.BuildElement( doc ) ;
            ///// by Irina D
            //In case we are going to insert a span
            //find out if the range is inside of another span and move it outside if yes. We switch off possible
            //bold/italic in this case but it is not so bad as inner spans for me
            if (range.StartContainer.parentNode) {
                if (collapsedElement.tagName == "SPAN") {
                    //range.StartContainer.nodeName - points to #text node in ff and to its parent element in ie
                    var parentEl;
                    if (range.StartContainer.nodeType == 3) { //text node
                        //probably mozilla
                        parentEl = range.StartContainer.parentNode;
                    } else {
                        //probably ie
                        parentEl = range.StartContainer;
                    if (parentEl.tagName != "P" && parentEl.tagName != "BODY") {
                        //probably we are inside of span
                        if (range.CheckEndOfBlock()) {
                            //cursor is not inside of text but we are just typing in the end of line
                            for (;;) {
                                //we can be inside of bold/italic and that can be inside of span
                                //so find that possible parent span.
                                if (!parentEl) break;
                                if (parentEl.tagName == "P" || parentEl.tagName == "SPAN"
                                        || parentEl.tagName == "BODY") break;
                                parentEl = parentEl.parentNode;
                            if (parentEl) if (parentEl.tagName == "SPAN") {
                                //if we found out that we are inside of span and that new element is span too
                                //then we should start our new span outside previous one
                                range.SetStart(parentEl, 4);
            ///// end by Irina D
            range.InsertNode( collapsedElement ) ;
			range.MoveToPosition( collapsedElement, 2 ) ;
			range.Select() ;

			return ;
