8.1.4. Text Area: TEXTAREA

The <TEXTAREA> element represents a multi-line text field. Attributes are:

the number of visible columns to display for the text area, in characters.

Specifies the name of the form field.

The number of visible rows to display for the text area, in characters.

For example:

    <TEXTAREA NAME="address" ROWS=6 COLS=64>
    HaL Computer Systems
    1315 Dell Avenue
    Campbell, California 95008

The content of the <TEXTAREA> element is the field's initial value.

Typically, the ROWS and COLS attributes determine the visible dimension of the field in characters. The field is typically rendered in a fixed-width font. HTML user agents should allow text to extend beyond these limits by scrolling as needed.
