HTML Question

New line in text area

<textarea cols='60' rows='8'>This is my statement one.\n This is my statement2</textarea>

<textarea cols='60' rows='8'>This is my statement one.<br/> This is my statement2</textarea>


I tried both but new line is not reflecting while rendering the html file.
How can I do that?

Answer

Try this one:

<textarea cols='60' rows='8'>This is my statement one.&#13;&#10;This is my statement2</textarea>

&#10; Line Feed and &#13; Carriage Return are HTML entitieswikipedia. This way you are actually parsing the new line ("\n") rather than displaying it as text.
