    definite "insert at carret" function?

    Hi all
    I've been trying to find a javascript function to insert text in a textarea at the insertion point and via a button, or to add code (like opening and closing tags) around a selected text in a text area, via a button.
    I've found many scripts that pretend to work, but they don't seem to work here on Safari or any Mac Browser.
    I was wondering if there was a definite, cross-browser and cross-platform solution for this.

    If not, the "guided Mode" in this very forum when you type a new message seems to work nicely, so I took a look at the page's source code, but there's so much in there - I couldn't find my way to the specific script that would do just that...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Use the Edit features of your browser to search for all "script" tags on the source page. If you see something like this:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="clientscript/vbulletin_quickreply.js"></script>

    that means the html page is linking to an external javascript file. To see the file, paste the 'src' into your browser's address bar preceded by:
