Description Aharon Lanin 2010-12-08 13:58:05 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #11436 +++

A Note in the spec currently states: "A newline in a pre element separates paragraphs for the purposes of the Unicode bidirectional algorithm." Would it be possible to add a similar note for the textarea element?
