Home › Forums › CSS › textarea tag takes spaces between them into the text area content
Using of the textarea tags as above leaves 4 tabs space(space between tags above) when focused.
When you click on the textarea it starts to blink leaving 4 blank spaces.
Sounds like a reset issue…perhaps built in padding?
Then again…why do you have spaces between the tags?
However, if you do, I think white-space: pre-line; will remove it.
