Hi..
I'm trying to set a value of a TEXTAREA.

  <textarea  id="notes" name="notes" class="editor" rows="3" cols="60"></textarea><br/>
                                                  
By doing the follwing

   $(".modal-body #notes").val(' CRAP! ');

Does not work

But


If I remove the class='editor' from the HTML, like this.  It works!!   Any Ideas?

  <textarea  id="notes" name="notes"  rows="3" cols="60"></textarea><br/>
