Pasting multiple lines into a single line text box

Hello, I have an <input type="text" /> textbox that when the Enter key
is pressed, it's text gets processed by a javascript and it clears the
contents of the textbox.  I was wondering if it's possible to have it
handle pasting multiple-lines of text into it, so that on every line
break it get's processed by javascript then clears the text field and
handles the next line.

I know IE has onpaste and onbeforepaste events, but I still can't see
how to do what I want with those.  Any suggestions?  I might be able
to use a textarea and have it mimic the behavior of a single line text

?? Use the right tools for the application, especially where there is
already a tool for your needs.

textbox => single line of input
textarea => multiple lines of input

Take care,
