How to apply the font-face tag to a textarea using Netscape 3?

I have a form with a textarea. Before the <TEXTAREA> tag, I have a <FONT FACE="..."> tag.
When using Netscape 4, the font in the textarea is the font of the <FONT FACE="..."> tag, as I want it to be.
However, Netscape 3 ignores my <FONT FACE="..."> tag, and the text appears in another font (not the one I intended).

To check the situation even better, I put 2 textareas in the form, each one preceded by a different <FONT FACE=".."> tag. Using Netscape 4 they appear different, using Netscape 3 they appear exactly the same.

How do I apply the font tag to the textarea using Netscape 3 too?

Hehe, you can hold your breath until your face turn blue, in the end you will still be unable to do this in Netscape 3.

If you want an alternative way to do this in 4.0 browser I can give you some options, but forget 3 already. :)

PBall is correct.  The 3.x versions did not have CSS included (IE 3.x has a little).  There is no way to change the font face in a textarea in 3.x browsers...
