    I'm looking for a way to make a text box on my site bigger than it currently is. I know there is some simple HTML code for it. Basically, i'm inquiring about the 'row', 'column', and 'wrap' attributes of the TEXTAREA tag, because I know they hold the key.

    P.S, the address of the page I'm having a problem with is:
    http://www.InterFall.com/Franklin/mail1.asp

    Thanks for your help!

    Instead of the height and width parts you have, use rows and cols.

    ie.
    <textarea name="name of field" rows=15 cols=65></textarea>

    That should hopefully fix it.

    Bingo - also worth remembering (but you probably already know this) that the column attribute for this tag and the text box tag is given in characters and not in pixels as some of my delegates seem to think
