The <textarea> tag means a multiple line text input control. textarea can hold an unlimited numbers of characters. The size of textarea can control by cols and rows attribute.

[TABLE="required attribute"]Attribute Value Description
cols number Specifies the visible width of a text-area

[TABLE="optinal attribute"]Attribute Value Description

textarea is a multi-row text area form elements. It has required attributes like cols and rows and optional attributes like name, readonly disable. I give you example to create textarea.

HTML Code:
<form action="somescript.php" />
	<p>Your address</p>
	<div><textarea name="address"cols="30" rows="4"></textarea></div>
	<div><input type="submit" /></div>
</form>
