Text Boxes - using a mouse to highlight text

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.

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


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