In an input button, put this.<input type=button value="Highlight All" onClick="java script:this.form.txt.focus();this.form.txt.select();">where the name(or id?) or the textarea is 'txt'. :)

thanks 4 the helpand about name/id, i use both (name="txtBox" id="txtBox"), and getElementById()...in IE 6 if you got only 'name', getElementById() works as well, with an extra advantage of input the name/id by a string, what allow to call dinamicaly the objects(using a 'for' to get all text1, text2, text3...text10, for example)
