i am accepting user input how do i know how many paragraphs the user is going to enter?? You are limiting it to 3 as far as i can tell.<BR><BR>I would NEVER be allowed to substitute input boxes for a text area when you are going to get user input which COULD run into paragraphs. QA would throw it back in my face faster than you can spit. Very BAD UI and not a very good soultion either<BR><BR>But i guess for an application where yo dont have the devil of QA (as i call it) then you can do what you want. <BR><BR>Why not just a text area and replace the line feed with either "td" or "p" or even "BR" tags...Not workable???
