I have the following html code:

  <FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="file.htm">
    <TABLE CELLPADDING="10" BORDER=0 ALIGN="CENTER">
      <TR>
        <TD BGCOLOR="#0080C0" ALIGN="LEFT">
          <B>
            <FONT FACE="ARIAL" SIZE=2 COLOR="#FFFFFFF">
              Field1 <BR><SELECT NAME="cboCombo" > 
              <OPTION> Option1 </OPTION>
              <OPTION> Option2 </OPTION>
              <OPTION> Option3 </OPTION>
              </SELECT>
              <BR>
              <BR>
              Field2 <BR><INPUT NAME="txtText1" SIZE="22">
              <BR>
              <BR>
              Field3 <BR><INPUT NAME="txtText2" SIZE="22">
              <BR>
              <BR>
              Field4 <BR><TEXTAREA NAME="txtText4" ROWS="5" COLS="19"></TEXTAREA>
              <BR>
            </FONT>
          </B>
        </TD>
      </TR>
      <TR>
        <TD BGCOLOR="#0080C0" ALIGN="CENTER">
          <INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE= "Ok">
        </TD>
      </TR>
    </TABLE>
  </FORM>

Inside all the fields, the font type is Arial. The problem is that inside the Textarea, the font type changes, I think to Sans.

OK, you can use CSS to control the font of form elements.  Here is an example:
<INPUT NAME="field" STYLE="font-family: courier; font-size: 14pt;" TYPE="TEXT" SIZE=50>
This will work for a text area as well.  Of course it only works on 4.0+ browsers (IE 4 will work).  Just add the style="" part to your page.  The font-size is just there because I make it slightly bigger on my page.  If you don't want that (I wouldn't think you would) just remove it.

Oh, upon reading this question again, I think that maybe you are asking how you can fix that from the user end?  SO that all textarea's will be that font by default unless someone uses CSS to specify it like I mentioned.
Is that what you meant?
