Textarea question

I wonder what the "parameter" WRAP does in the textarea-tag. An example would be:
<textarea name="adfa" WRAP=VIRTUAL cols=2 rows=2>idfi</textarea>

Can anyone explain it and tell me what values it can have?

WRAP attribute in the TEXTAREA tag:

You can specify how to handle word-wrapping in text input areas in forms.

<TEXTAREA WRAP=OFF> -- the default setting

Wrapping doesn't happen. Lines are sent exactly as typed.


The display word-wraps, but long lines are sent as one line without new-lines.


The display word-wraps, and the text is transmitted at all wrap points.
