    Sorry if that sounds confusing, but what I mean is how do I have it to where text in a scollbox automatically highlights when people click the inside of it. That way they don't have to highlight it themsevles when they go to copy & paste it... Is there a code for it? I know I've seen other sites do it...

    Hey, this should work:
    <textarea cols="40" rows="10" onClick="javascript:this.select();">
    Just some test text here
    and there
