Selection styles

Found out by accident that it's possible to style the text selected by the user in Mozilla and Safari.

Notes In Mozilla as of Today

::-moz-selection {} removes all selection highlighting (Bug to be fixed by me hopefully soon).

And ::-moz-selection { cursor: foo; } does not work for any element/object as of yet. I wish I can figure out how to solve that problem sooner than later as well.

Just a heads up for anyone wishing to use those specifications of ::-moz-selection

This seems not to be working:
::-moz-selection, ::selection {...}
Mozilla ignores that rule if there are other Selectors, thats a bug, hm?

I find as well in Camino that if you group the Mozilla selector with the regular one, Camino ignores it. Definitely a bug.

Konqueror supports this too.

tested with:

$ konqueror -v
Qt: 3.3.4
KDE: 3.4.2-1.2.fc3.kde
Konqueror: 3.4.2-1.5.fc3.kde
