    Question Display Style Inside a Text Area

    Hi there,
    Does anyone know of a way that i can display styled text within a text area/box?

    say i wanted to write something like this..

    <text area>
    I am <span class="style1> tearing </span>
    my hair out over this <span class="style2">Project</span>
    </text>

    The text does not get displayed in the relevant styles and all the text gets written to the page.

    Anyone know of a workaround to this?

    Thanks

    Ally

    It seems you can't put markup into a textarea or input field. But you could always make something look like a text area.
    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>This is not a text box.</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    div.boxlike{
    border: 3px inset #fff;
    padding: 5px;
    width: 300px;
    font-family: monospace;
    }
    div.boxlike p{
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    }
    em.mega{
    color: #f00;
    }
    -->
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div class="boxlike">
    <p>This is <em>not</em> a text box.</p>
    <p>No really, it <em class="mega">isn't</em>.</p>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Thats cool deep, but i need to be able to edit the text that is written aswell.. That was why i was using a text area..

    I have tried writing to cells of tables, although that works, i then cannot edit the text and save it again.

    Do you have any other ideas??

    Thanks
