    Is there a way I can make a scrolling box so I can change the font? I can do a normal form field box but the text I put into it is ony one font, I have no control over it. Any way I can do a custome one? I just want a updates box people can scroll but I want it to blend with my site, thanks for the help

    Ok well what I want to do is use a scrolling box for my updates, you know like a form box. I just want to know if there is a way to change the font, it all goes to a default font. If you guys have any ideas let me know, I think I know of something else I can use

    I would reccomend using a scrolling DIV, CSS support inside textareas is not as widely supported by older browsers and ends up in some funky rendering.... I think there's a tutorial for a scrolling div in the tutorials section
