making an iframe into an input area

Hi, On my web based email account I have a compose message. This is an Iframe which somehow is used instead of a text area. This would better suit my needs for my website. Any ideas on how to do it?
Thank you in advance.

Do you have a link to see what you mean?

Otherwise, the iframe code would look something like this:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>New Page 1</title>
</head>
<body>
<p>Stuff</p>
<p>
<iframe name="I1" src="bottom.htm" target="contents">
Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames.
</iframe></p>
</body>
</html>

It probably is not an iframe.

for firefox there is this

<head>
<SCRIPT src="http://mozile.mozdev.org/mozile/mozileLoader.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<p>&nbsp
<div style="-moz-user-modify: read-write;-moz-user-input: enabled;-moz-user-select:
normal;height:300;width:500;border:1px solid black;overflow:scroll">

Editable area type in here
</div>
</body>
</html>


for IE there is this

<div style="height:300;width:500;border:1px solid"  contenteditable>
Editable area type in here
</div>

It is easy enough to put a textarea field within an Iframe on a page, and load that, but the Iframe would not be necessary, unless it is following the general site layout -- i.e. a text area is loading into an existing Iframe.  Why not do a "view source code" to fine out for certain?

Unfortunately the only example I have is after logging into my email account. I have tried to view the source but there is a lot of it and is bit too complicated for me! as its seems to be a lot of javascripting. I found on the page a mention of Iframes and it is the only iframe on the page, so am guessing that it is it! Here is the source of it and around it:
There is loads of code before and after it though!

<body onbeforeunload="OnBeforeUnload();">
<iframe id="spaceidframe" name="spaceidframe" src="about:blank" style="visibility:hidden;position:absolute;height:1px;width:1px"></iframe>

Thanks

That is not likely to be it.  If it is an input area where you can enter text, you should be looking for a tag like --

<FORM><TEXTAREA rows="12" cols="60" name="input"></TEXTAREA></FORM>

Look for the FORM tags, they are key to any input you will provide on the page, and they will enclose the textarea tag, where you input the data, as I understand what you are looking for...
