Need to track down where this gets rendered and get it working. Currently we don't see a caret or selection when dragging the mouse over test in forms or the awesomebar.
I have a caret in non xul textboxes.  
html input works.

I wonder if Fennec chrome purposely disables this somehow. Another situation where we'll need to detect connected hardware and adjust the interface accordingly.
I think it's on purpose as well, just found this:

I'll play with it a bit and see if it works.  We'd only want to set it when a keyboard is attached I think.
