The TEXTAREA input control creates a multi-line text box which allows the user to input as much text data as they like. This is defined inside of a web form using the FORM element.

Unlike other input controls, this one does not have a VALUE attribute. Instead, the value is taken from the contents of the element between the starting and closing tags.

An end tag is required when using this element.
