I don't know what you mean by not being able to break a line in Firefox. If you mean a huge long string without a space, try setting the wrap attribute to soft and see what happens.

If you're talking about Javascript putting line breaks into the textarea, you would use "\n"

Ok, if you type smth like this:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Yes, it won't wrap.

But if you try to type smth real like "Hello, World! This is my first HTML page!" it does wrap.
