How to Make Text Wrap in HTML Forms

One common problem with typing into Web forms is dealing with <TEXTAREA> input fields and having your words go right off the right edge of the box into infinity as you type your entry.

Apparently, many developers aren't aware of the WRAP attribute. For some reason, the default is WRAP=OFF. Just make sure that WRAP=PHYSICAL and users will be able to type normally into your fields:

 <TEXTAREA WRAP=PHYSICAL NAME=field_name COLS=40 ROWS=4></TEXTAREA>
A WRAP=VIRTUAL argument also exists, but it doesn't insert new lines as it's supposed to. PHYSICAL and VIRTUAL behave identically at this point.
