Do you mean disable select-text inside certain elements on the page only? You can do this already with the script as is. For example:

<div id="mydiv">Text inside this DIV isn't selectable</div>

<p>Text that IS selectable</p>

<script type="text/javascript">
var somediv=document.getElementById("mydiv")
disableSelection(somediv) //disable text selection within DIV with id="mydiv"
