So appearently I cannot use
on any element other than textareas?
Any workaround to do this on a 'pre' tag?
or any feelings on this?
am i not thinking about this correctly?

What are you trying to do?

ya, sry... wasnt very specific.
thats the page im working on.
is the js im using.
basically i have bunch of 'snippets', and i wanna have them highlight (for easy copying) when you click them.
Currently I hav jsut switched from pre to textarea, but it seems more semantically sound for them to be pre, but i guess its no big deal.
lemme kno what people think.

Both text areas and pres keep their formatting. I would use a textarea for what you want to do. Only thing you might want to do is run the snippets through some server side script that converts < and > to html entities. Just make the textareas readonly so users can't accidently erase them.
