on my site, one popular item, albeit under used, is the lost pet log.

i have redone the lostpet page and it is now almost in compliance with the local animal shelter. they have a place for a photo and so i need to allow the posting party to paste a scan. when this is done i will be able to pull up a complete wanted poster for the missing pet.

i also want to be able to do a brief review of the content and eMail it to the shelter to assist the official filing process.

but right now i have a text area to post into and this is not working (so i assume i am wrong in using textarea).

all other data will post to the mysql with no problem.

the form is at http://www.noevalley.com/lostpet.php3

thanks in advance.
