How does one change the font color in a text area? I have a page for which parameters can be inserted into a mesage, and I want the parameters to be a different color (and bold), so that they are distinguishable from the rest of the text in the textarea.

Are you both working together? Than why did ypu both ask same question. As the other post said, it is IMPOSSIBLE to do with a textarea.

You need to use a WYSIWYG editor. CKEditor is one choice, YUI Editor is another.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
