Sorry, I'm new to Javascript.
Is there some way to use a cookie to store quite a chunk of text?

I'd like it so I could enter some text, for example into a textarea, then have a cookie so that if I close the page, when I open it again the text is still there. (perhaps not in the textarea, though, if that wouldn't work)

Is this possible? Do you have any examples/ideas I could see?
Many thanks
