in reply to Textarea boxes in CGI

My memory is a little foggy (it's almost quitting time for today)... but I think the textarea's wrap attribute can have an affect on this as well. The textarea wrap attribute can be set to HARD,VIRTUAL,OFF,SOFT. The sticky issue is these attributes are browser dependent.

The white-space CSS property is similar to the textarea's wrap attribute. Possible Values are: normal, pre, and nowrap

A google search shows this:, this, and this. These describe wrap, but may not be worth much else.

Update: Right, cLive. I bolded the part of my post that mentioned that. =]

    It's worth noting that wrap is not a valid html/xhtml attribute for a textarea tag, but a browser extension that (I think) was first brought in by Netscape), and then adopted (with slightly different attribute values) in IE.

    Use with caution!
