Steps to reproduce

Repro Steps:

Example with readonly flag here: http://jsfiddle.net/saschanaz/WbzX6/2/

  1. Make a textarea element with readonly flag set.
  2. Tap the element on Windows Phone.
  3. You cannot select the text to copy it.

Expected Results:

textarea.select() should work as if the user manually selected the text by text curser, while it doesn’t work so currently. Double tap is always required when users want to copy or replace any text on textarea element.

Actual Results:

User is not able to select the text to copy it.
