insert text at cursor position

Hi there,

I'd like to insert a text into a textarea at the current cursor position
when you click on a button, but I only found out how to insert a text at
the end of the textarea. Is it possible to insert text at cursor position
and if it is, how can I do it?
Thanks for any help

Google ist your friend. [psf 6.1]

And the Gecko DOM (used by Mozilla/5.0) provides selectionStart
and selectionEnd properties for HTMLTextArea objects.
