I have a textarea field in my form, I set cols=60 and rows=20 but I am unable to submit a large number of characters. I keep clicking on the submit button but nothing happens. I read somewhere that the cols and rows indicate automatically how many characters will be allowed. In the above examples it would be 60*20=1200 characters. So I made sure the text is 1000 characters, but still it wouldn't take it. When I cut it down to a small paragraph or two (say 200 characters or so) it takes it just fine. I am aware that textarea doesn't support maxlength or something like that.. So has anybody seen the problem I am seeing? can you help?
