and they'll give you an idea of what is possible, notice thing like if you write a text and they go back to insert a url at the begining of your text it will insert the url at the end, so it cant detect where you have clicked in the <textarea>. <textarea> is not sensitive to mouse interaction, clicks and highlights and i think you would have to use a select as follows to get that sort of interaction
<select name="select" size="5" multiple>
of course then selects are not editable so thats no help!

I wish the people who make the browsers would incorporate a text edit feature in the browser itself!

well does'nt netscape have "composer"?? don't know how good/bad it is, never used it!
anyway if you want to edit your html in the browser you should check out "manilla" one server i can recommend that has manilla sites is...
