    What is the difference between Delete and Backspace in standard editors with respect to cursor.

    backspace - remove previous character.

    the difference with respect to cursor will be that
    in backspace, (the previous character is removed and) the cursor is shifted 1 character(unit) on the left
    in delete, the cursor stays there itself (and the character to the right is deleted)
