I want to make a table where the text in the table rows is not selectable.

You will have to use several methods to get something that works cross-browser. I use this combination of CSS and JavaScript. For the CSS part, assign the class "unselectable" to the element:

CODE

.unselectable {
   -moz-user-select: none;
   -khtml-user-select: none;
   user-select: none;
}

and then using JS, add an onselectstart handler to it:

CODE

yourEl.onselectstart = function() { return(false); };

You could also use behaviours to sort out IE, instead of that JavaScript:

CODE

.unselectable {
   behavior: url(ieUserSelectFix.htc);
}

and then create this file, "ieUserSelectFix.htc":

CODE

<public:component lightweight="true">

    <public:attach event="ondocumentready" onevent="stopSelection()" />

    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
        function stopSelection() {
            element.onselectstart = function() { return(false); };
            element.setAttribute('unselectable', 'on', 0);
        }
    //-->
    </script>
</public:component>

Hope this helps,
Dan
