I would like to be able to loop through characters in a textbox and index them, work out their position and when a new line is started (i.e. when the text reaches the edge of the text box and wraps or when the enter key is pressed.)

Thanks, say the contents of the textbox has some script that inserts the contents of the textbox into these tags [div]{content to check is in here}[/div] how do I then remove these to do the indexing?
