<BODY width = "100%" >

If that does not work, the pocket browser is deliberately scaling ALL pages down to a size it feels is right to display on the pocket screen.  If this is built into the pocket ROM, you can try to fudge it with --

<BODY width = "120%" >

or something at the right scale.  If that makes no difference, the ROM rules, and you are out of luck.

Have you tried putting the TextArea in a table and scaling the Table, Table Cell, and TextArea to 100%? If that doesn't work you should also try using a DIV instead of the Table.
