Answering posts here with an iPad - how do you see what you type?

The position of the keyboard most times covers what I'm typing making it difficult to see my own text. Is there a way to work around this?

Even when I scroll up as far as I can go the editor where we type our posts is under the keyboard. Is that normal for viewing the forum on an iPad?

No. I can see this just fine as I type on my iPad. The gray bar at the top of the keyboard just covers the 'preview' and 'post message' buttons.

Undock or split the keyboard.

If you drag on the "keyboard" key at the bottom-right corner, you can slide the keyboard up and down and position it wherever you like. So you can move it if it's covering your text-input area. The slightly gnarled appearance of that key is a visual hint (very subtle, obviously) that dragging on that key might do something.
