I'm providing a button to click which selects
the code in the field for them. I'd like to make it
as easy as possible for them to get the copy
of the code they need. Yes, those without JS
will need to click in the field and select the
text themselves but for this application
most will have JS browsers.

Of course if I can't find a way around
Netscape's handling of the textarea field
I'll probably wind up using a different
solution anyway. Having to allow for its
mandatory monospaced font means
too big a difference between what
the Netscape and IE users will see.
