Simple HTML entities AND textarea problem

Hello.

I am displaying text from a database in textarea (it contains HTML entities such as < etc…).

The problem is that in textarea I see only the character equivalents to HTML entities (< etc…).

Where could be the problem? Please help me with this.

Oh nevermind I have solved it myself…
