Hey Friend, I have been having issues with this dilema and have done it in IE but when it comes to Firefox the buttons won't select the text. If you can take it any further to make it work with firefox please let me know. Here is what I propose.

<table cellSpacing=2 cellPadding=3 width="400px">
<tr>
<td class=table_head vAlign=top width="40%">Coding</td>
<td vAlign=top width="10%">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class=table_text vAlign=top width="40%"><textarea cols=55 name="mytextarea">"Some Text Goes Here"</textarea></td>
<td vAlign=top width="10%"><p><input type=button value="[Select Text]" onClick="mytextarea.focus();mytextarea.select();" border=0 /></p></td>
</tr></table>
