    help with textarea line-height and resizing textarea

    hi-

    does the textarea field accept a line-height style? i'm trying to get the text i enter in the textarea to match how my actual output will be (i'm using a line-height: 150%; ) but when i add this style to the textarea it doesn't seem to work for me.
    HTML Code:
    <textarea name="details" id="details" rows="7" cols="100" style="line-height:150%">
    <?php echo $details; ?>
    </textarea>
    is that correct or am i missing something?

    also is there anyway to have my textarea autogrow when the text entered causes it to scroll down? i would like the textarea to be intially somewhat small and grow (if needed) to show all the text at once. i think this can be done in javascript but would appreciate any links if someone knows a good script to do this.

    thanks for any help!

    Code:
    html {
     font:150%/2 sans-serif;
     background:yellow;
     color:navy;
    }
    textarea {
     font:100%/2 sans-serif; /* IE doesn't support "inherit" */
     height:10em;
     width:20em;
     background:transparent;
     color:navy; /* IE doesn't support "inherit" */
    }
