You used to be able to do it by long pressing the text field, but that no longer works in JellyBean.
Related tip. Long pressing the typing area no longer works as that brings up the Copy functionality introduced in ICS. Long press on a word and you will get a blue arrow at each end of the word. You can drag these to include as much text as you want to copy.
