Text with scrollbar

Hello all,

I need to load some HTML code I get from a TXT file into an HTML page.
The problem is that this is a long text and that it shoul be reduced to 7
or 8 lines. So I got the idea of loading it into a textarea but the problem
is that this textarea doesn't resolve the HTML code.

So it don't see the HTML formatted layout that I would like to see.
Does anyone know how to solve this, it should be a solution that is valid
for IE and Netscape.

If you saved it as a html page you could use an iframe.
