Hey Crazy, this is relatively easy, first, you really do need to simulate a form entry, even though you won't be executing it.

Try this...

<!--Start of FORM-->

<FORM METHOD=POST>
<TEXTAREA NAME="Field_Test" COLS=45 ROWS=10>
This is a default text area for full viewing<br>
by whoever wants to look at it.  It is easy to <br>
change the contents just by typing stuff, and <br>
the size by changing the columns and rows tag.<br></TEXTAREA>

</FORM>

<!--end of FORM-->

There is also another way you can target this text box via JaveScript, and have whatever image you want appear inside of it, this image can be pure text or a combination of both.  Want to know how? mark.g.franz@cpmx.saic.com
