Chapter 6. Forms > The <textarea> Tag

6.3. The <textarea> Tag

The <textarea> tag creates a multiline text-entry area in the user's browser display. In it, the user may type a nearly unlimited number of lines of text. When the form is submitted, the browser sends the text along with the name specified by the required name attribute.

You may include plain text between the <textarea> tag and its end tag </textarea>. The browser uses that text as the default value for the text area.
