Worth reading

Sorry...all I get by that example is an error!!! (Object doesn't support this methode!)
I'm using Netscape 4.70 and Explorer 5.00.
I copied the entire example into a blank HTML file and then tried to test it...with NO success!

Not worth reading

This code posted is not functional. window.findText is nto supported. I think what was meant was:

var rangeText = document.body.createTextRange( );
rangeText.findText('Please do not cut and paste.');

However this still does not work. I have an idea. Create an mouseup event handler and check the selected text if it is not nothing on mouse up set it to nothing. It's as simple as that.
