HtmlSelection selection = this.Document.selection;
HtmlControlRange range;

range = (HtmlControlRange)selection.createRange();

// if item is already selected return from selection
if ((range != null) && (range.length > 0))
if (range.item(0) == htmlElement)

// clear all selected items
while (range.length > 0)

// add selected element to the range of selection
range.add(htmlElement as IHTMLControlElement);

// set the range to be selected;
