Hi Parjinder - Welcome to the board.
Assuming that by 'highlight' you're referring to dragging the mouse over screen objects to select them (like you'd select a chunk of text in a word processor).
I've never heard of a way of turning this off... but then I've never really heard of a reason why somebody would want to? Why do you need to do this - perhaps we can help there?

I'm thinking about it and I can't come up with any good reason to want to turn of highlighting either.
Is this some attempt to make your site harder to copyright infringe? If so, give up now :-)

no no not copyright.
i was working on this drag + drop game. essentially dragging <div>s to various drop targets. but when u drag em because it's just like ur highlighting text/images you cant event handle as the browser thinks youre trying to highlight...blah blah
its ok though i've solved it by making it full screen. thanx 4 the help!

Well, I can't believe it but I've found a way of doing what you were after:
Who'd a' thought it?
