Table Drag Mode kills highlight ability

I created a table that has multipe different types of components in the columns. One of the columns, when clicked, turns into a text field. When the user clicks, the text field appears, and the current text is highlighted. The user also has the ability to hit Ctrl-A and highlight all the text. When I add the ability to do drag and drop, the highlighting of the text stops working in IE. Any suggestions? It currently still works in FF.
