Wrap Text in Netscape

With text boxes in forms or discussion forums, there’s a key difference in the way Microsoft Internet Explorer handles text entry from the way Netscape handles it. Whereas IE automatically wraps the text inside a text box, Netscape’s text simply runs off the edge without wrapping.

Fortunately, there’s an easy solution. First, create the text box using Frontpage Editor. Then, click the HTML tab to switch to HTML view. As part of the coding for the textbox, you should see something like this:

<textarea rows="12" name="Contact" cols="8" ></textarea>

To ensure that text will wrap correctly in Netscape, type

wrap="virtual"

directly into the HTML coding. It should look like this:

<textarea rows="12" name="Contact" cols="8" wrap="virtual">

Now the text will wrap correctly in both browsers
