Text Boxes - using a mouse to highlight text

  MS35 09:51 20 Jan 08

This must sound really basic, but if I use simple code to create a text box like below, in preview in Dreameaver or Frontpage I can use the mouse to highlight the text. When I load it up to my host the text box only allows keyboard control.

title>Test Text input /title>
textarea rows="3" cols="45" id="1Para" name="LettDet1"
>Please add your text here /textarea>

Why is this? and what can I do to allow mouse highlighting (like the input box i'm typing in now!)
