<textarea> bug????

P: n/a
Simple vbscript,html page loading into access.
Input pg posting to Confirm pg, then sending to access.

when using;

<textarea name="name" tabindex="15">
</textarea>

as an input renders tab spaces automatically.

I took out <Div> tags, and tried nowrap, and tried
reformatting data before sending to dbase (CStr, Trim),
with no answer to alleviate this problem.

Any suggestions????

I don't understand. Your tabs are disappearing? When? When you later
present the data in HTML? That's because a tab in a textarea is not HTML...
and HTML doesn't recognize a tab. You will need to replace for presentation
in a web page, something along the lines of:

txt = rs("txt")
response.write replace(txt, chr(9), "&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;")

The tabs are automatically in textarea when I try to enter
data into it. Also each time I display the textarea more
tabs are automatically entered into it. The dbase shows
square blocks - 2 before and 2 after the data, whether I
have the field as text or memo.

I am trying to rid the textarea of the tabs, or whatever
the squareblocks are.
