Description

The text area element is a multiline, multicolumn plain text typing area. You see it quite often in forums, e-mail forms—basically anywhere in which you have a large amount of text to type. I use them at JSLab myself to provide an editing interface for HTML code (and often to transport such code from the server to the client and vice versa).

I've mentioned how I use text areas to transport code in JSLab more than once in this book; I won't repeat it again here. However, there is one useful feature proprietary to both Netscape and Internet Explorer that the W3C has excluded from its HTML 4 Recommendation.
