    Word wrap does not work while typing comments. Any ideas on what the problem may be or how to fix would be greatly appreciated.

    TIA

    I have not had that blog for over four months now. If you noticed I changed my profile to include the actual web site http://www.xlseer.com AKA http://www.blogndoco.net

    Do I pass? :)

    Here is one that was recently a problem. It looks good after posting, but while typing your comment word wrap fails. If you don't mind put a test comment there and you should see what I am saying.

    thx

    Moshu: I would imagine fully 100% of the viewers to this site are using IE 5.5 or greater. I am using IE 6.0 and while typing this in the text goes about thirty or so characters off of the screen.

    Interestingly, resizing the window brings the text box back to within viewing limit. But then rentering into the textbox resizes the textbox beyond viewing.

    Thanks for your time.

    Folks at WordPress...

    This problem, in IE, is not unique to the original poster. MANY people have posted the same thing: that the right margin of the comments field blows away after entering the first character, and one has to type blindly after the text runs under the right margin and off the screen.

    See, for example:

    I hope someone can find an answer! (Fixing textarea cols= does not do anything).

    Thanks,

    Edgar
