    I have a page with a form on it, and it looks like I want it to in IE5. But in Netscape 4.08, it inserts random line breaks and does not format my textarea correctly. If someone could give me the answer, I would very much appreciate it. The site is at http://relyt.vr9.com/drugs/contact.html . Thanks!!!

    You mean inside the textarea?? If so I wouldn't worry too much about it, I mean why sweat the small stuff. If your form looks good overall you can't force the browser to support proper word wrapping.

    It has something to do with IE making it a different size depending on the font being used, while netscape just uses fixed width fonts.

    There's nothing really you can do about it except perhaps use a different font for the textarea that makes it the same size in both.

    No, the size of the textarea. It is bigger in IE, but the attributes don't seem to carry over.
