Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: That's up to the UA's 'textarea' binding.

What does that mean?
Comment 3 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2011-05-10 03:39:01 UTC
This section defines the behaviour and presentation of a 'textarea' element in terms of a hypothetical BECSS binding:

How that binding works, including whether it allows you to pop the editor into its own window, whether it has particular borders or 'resize' values, whether it does spelling checking, whether it has a built in thesaurus, whether it can write "tl;dr" summaries for you, whether it does syntax highlighting, whether it  supports dictation via speech recognition, etc, etc, etc, is all up to the UA.
