Hello.

I think that web developers really need a standard on working with 
selection in textarea and input type=text fields.

Now there's no standard that describes how to get starting point of 
selection, ending point of selection, and cursor position.
Also there's no standard that describes how to set selection and cursor 
position.

Now it can be done in Mozilla and MSIE but neither in Opera nor in Safari.

We'll make a great step into compatibility if Web Forms will contain 
such standard.

Thank you very much.
