Note that "JavaScript" != "Java" -- they have similar names
but are in fact totally different languages and environments.
The similarity in names causes a lot of confusion -- see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javascript#Java.2C_JavaScript.2C_and_JScript .

However, to answer your question, we need for Safari to provide
.setSelectionRange, .selectionStart, and .selectionEnd attributes
for <textarea> objects in JavaScript.
