On my HTML Form I have the need to allow entry of a great deal of data into a <TEXTAREA>.   I need to read through my <TEXTAREA> so that I can store the textarea into my database (Access) in 255 byte chunks.

Does anyone have a script that does this, or at least manipulates the <TEXTAREA> a byte at a time?
