Textarea with an input box

How do you use <textarea> with an input box?
I tried this, but it didn’t work (obviously), but it seems close to what i need.

echo 'description:<textarea rows="3" cols="30"> <input style="width:275px;height:50px;overflow:scroll;" name="description" value="' . $description . '" type="text" /> </textarea> ';

The <textarea> element is an input box in its own right, so don’t put anything inside it.

This is the basic code:

<label for="desc">Description</label>
<textarea id="desc" name="description" rows="3" cols="30">

To style the <textarea>, target it in your stylesheet like so:

textarea {

I understand. Thanks ralph.m.
