dragging cursor highlights text

If I drag the cursor across a page, text and other elements get
selected. Is there anyway to prevent that from happening?

MS IE:
<div onselectstart="return false;">
Mozilla, Netscape
<div onmousedown="if (event.preventDefault) {
event.preventDefault();
}
return false;">
