Remove Scrollbar from Textarea in IE

By default all versions of IE have a scrollbar on textareas, even when they are empty.

No other browsers do this, so if you want to remove it so IE can visually match other browsers, just:

textarea { overflow: auto; }

The scrollbar will return (rightfully) when the text in the textarea expands beyond it’s bounds.
