  <tr><td>1stColumn</td><td>2nd Column</td><td>3rd Column</td><td>4thColumn</td></tr>
  <tr><td colspan="4"> <textarea rows="6"></textarea></td></tr>

Probably add a border, you will see that td occupying 4 columns
<table border="1">
  <tr><td>1stColumn</td><td>2nd Column</td><td>3rd Column</td><td>4thColumn</td></tr>
  <tr><td colspan="4"> <textarea rows="6" width="100%"></textarea></td></tr>
