    I need to be able to put text areas on a page, fill them with text from a database, and make it all fancy. Bolds, colors, etc.... and preferably under user control.

    1. Is this possible using HTML?
    2. Assuming 1, how do I do this thing? Is there a control someplace for rtf in HTML textarea blocks?

    I am not so sure you can use bold and colors in a textarea with bare-bones HTML. I am pretty sure textareas can only show plain text.

    There is probably a script that could do it, but not with just HTML...

    Specifically:
    Code:
    <textarea style="background-color:red; color:blue; border:90px solid green">
    ...you can also steal WDF's textarea code (look in the head for the bginput CSS class).

    Well, I guess what I really want can't really be done in HTML without significant programming resources.

    I'm trying to mimic a VB6 program which does everything but tie your damn shoes.

    Oh well, it was a nice job while it lasted ....

    You can only have one style (font, color, weight, size) per textarea. If you want multiple styles, try using iFrames.

    Look at http://www.advancedwebcontent.com/ed...age_editor.htm to see just such an interface that I'm in the process of building.
