    Most frustrating problem - Loosing HTML formatting in a textarea on resize

    spies_like_us

      Hi all,

       

      I have a textarea where I set the htmltext to a text string. In this text I have URLs that I want to decorate with an underline and have blue

       

      I am setting this text using <fort> and/or <u> tags and his all works fine until I resize the textarea and all the HTML formatting is lost. It's still there in the htmltext, but the textarea just looses it.

       

      If I reanalyze the text and run validatenow() on the component, it comes back, but I can't deal with it flickering on and off like it's doing.
