align a textarea box to the right of the page

P: 1
I don't know how to right align a textarea box. I can use the center tag and the textarea box centers, but when I use the align=right attribute, the table stays at the left. How do I right align a textarea box?

you'd have to put the <textarea> tag into a <p> tag.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <p align="right"><textarea></textarea></p>
that works perfectly

hope this helps!

Since all of that was deprecated years ago it would be better to use CSS and do this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <textarea style="float:right">hello</textarea>
