Since I cannot control if my users have caret browsing enabled or disabled on IE8, I would like it if the cursor position wouldn't flash within GXT non-text input components (i.e. button), as I attempt to show here.

Is there a way to get buttons to that the unselectable attribute is set on them?

Also, I have noticed the cursor position blink underneath a cell on a grid. It is as though the row has a higher z index and if I click close enough to the bottom of the row, I can get a cursor to blink.

I am working on a grid with read only cells and edit cells, so removing cursor position selection would be helpful. I'm not interested in disabling caret selection for the web page, since users should be able to cut and paste. I just want to stop/hide it in areas where it is confusing to the user.
