       HTMLDocument::addTextarea - Adds a textarea


       ElementTree      addTextarea(      ElementTree     parent,     String     name,     String
       initialtext=createString(0), Int rows=5, Int cols=40 )


       parent The parent element

       name The name of the textarea. Remember that names starting with "kaya_" may  be  used  by
       the Kaya standard library and should not be used directly by applications.

       initialtext  The initial contents of the textarea, if any. Thisparameter is optional, with
       the empty string as a default.

       rows The number of rows the fieldset has. This parameter may be omitted for a  default  of

       cols  The  number of columns the fieldset has. This parameter may be omitted for a default
       of 40. Note that there is  no  browser-independent  relationship  between  the  number  of
       columns  in  a  text  area,  and  the  size  of a normal text input, so getting them to be
       consistently the same width is not possible.


       Adds a textarea to a form. Remember that textareas may not be added directly to the form -
       you  need  to  add  a  block-level  element such as fieldset to the form, and then add the
       textareas to that. Text areas are useful for entering large  amounts  of  user  input,  or
       where the user input needs to contain new lines.
