    A textarea on its own won't allow you to click and copy to clipboard like this:

    <textarea id=html onclick="highlight(this)"> HTML here </textarea>

    <script language=Javascript>

    function highlight(text) {

    You probably mean a 'textarea'. And what you want to do is called 'escaping'. If you are using PHP, you can call <?php echo htmlspecialchars($data); ?> inside the textarea tags. If not, then you get to have fun with Javascript to do string replacements.
