You want to use
<textarea rows="8" cols="20"> Your comments...</textarea>
if you are using it in a form and want a multiline text input area.

You will use
<input type="text" ... />
When you want a single line input area.

And you can use the maxlength parameter to limit the text in either field, but be aware that there are some browser incompatabilities with it.
