Yes, but it would be unfriendly to tell about them. You would either make
the textarea elements less useable to users, or you would continue abuse
of textarea for something else than data input. So let's conclude with
the statement that it cannot be done in HTML and that you need to explain
what you ultimately wish to achieve - maybe _that_ is implementable.
Umm... Why are cars different? Why are people different?
There are some oddities in textarea rendering, but they are related to
the common (and quite understandable) default of rendering them in a
monospace font. And that font might have characteristics that make it
look bigger than "normal" fonts of the same size, so browsers may have
defaults that reduce the font size. This implies that if you change the
font face only, you might be surprised. But it also means that different
browsers do such tuning in different ways.
