    Exclamation Focus form field makes cursor shift

    I am using a form with several teaxtareas. However, when focussing on a textarea, the cursor shifts to the right. Can someone explain why?

    cheers, Jochem

    There is white space between the beginning and end tags of the <textarea>s.

    I'm afraid I don't quite get what you mean. If I put all the coding in one line, the cursor still shifts to the right.

    cheers, Jochem

    Change
    Code:
    <tr><td colspan="2">
            <textarea style="width:624px;" name="experience" rows="6"
                    onKeyDown ="textCounter(this.form.experience,this.form.remLen6,550);"
                    onKeyUp   ="textCounter(this.form.experience,this.form.remLen6,550);">
            </textarea></td></tr>
    to
    Code:
    <tr><td colspan="2">
            <textarea style="width:624px;" name="experience" rows="6" cols="64"
                    onkeydown="textCounter(this,this.form.remLen6,550);"
                    onkeyup="textCounter(this,this.form.remLen6,550);"
            ></textarea></td></tr>
    Other changes:
    • Event names are all lowercase.
    • "this.form.experience" is the same as "this"
    • cols is a required attribute. The CSS width should override it.

    Thank you Kravvitz for your continuous support. I very much appreciate it.

    I implemented your suggested changes to the "Program Details" textarea, which I use as as a test case. I see what you did to get rid of the white space, but unfortunately it does not seem to have an effect. I tested in IE and FF. What am I doing wrong?

    cheers, Jochem

    Code:
    <tr><td colspan="5">
            <textarea style="width:624px; overflow:hidden;" name="program_comments" rows="6" cols="100"
                      onkeydown="textCounter(this,this.form.remLen1,550);"
                      onkeyup  ="textCounter(this,this.form.remLen1,550);"
            ></textarea></td></tr>

    You only changed the first two <textarea>s. The other 4 need fixing as well.
