When I create a textarea, put stuff in, save it to the database, and recall
it to the textarea later, it alway comes up with what looks like a large tab
spacing in the beginning. If I save it back, it comes back the same way.
If I delete the leading stuff and save it again, it still comes back exactly
This is only for the first paragraph so I suspect there are some leading
characters that I don't know about. How can I get it to display starting at
the left edge?
Re: textarea curiousity
I ran another little test. I bypassed the database and simply sent the text
as an argument and retrieved it with $_GET. I also echoed the first three
characters. Here are the results:
1 - The cursor is initially positioned at column 3.
2 - If I backspace to column one and put in text, then the first three
characters match the text I put in. The cursor is positioned initially at
3 - If I don't backspace, the first two characters become blanks
(non-printable) and the display starts at column 5
