IHTMLDocument2 activeElement

Hello all,
Have one question.
How can i change the IHTMLDocument2.activeElement and IHTMLDocument2.selection type?
When user set cursor in Editor, i already have IHTMLTxtRange. If text in current position in TD of TABLE, i can show to user Structure of Document (TABLE->TR->TD->text) in another window helper, and user can change current element of document structure by clicking one of this example(TABLE->TR->TD->text) element.
After user select element, i whant to select this element in Editor (Show visual border arround Table and etc.) and change activeElement (change IHTMLDocument2.selection type).

How can i do this?
Please help.

What you need to do is get a range, and then do a select(). I have yet to be able to make it work consistantly though for some reason....
