    Hi,

    I have a wordpress blog that i cannot add plugins to because it is hosted at wordpress. I would like to have a textbox that has code markup inside of it, but there are some major breaks that happen when i do this.

    I'm attempting to make a textbox that people can copy&paste from to put a little logo on their blog that is also a link to my blog... the code i was hoping would work is:

    <textarea rows="4" cols="40"> <a href="http://thisblogispoweredbycoffee.wordpress.com" title="powered by coffee blog" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.bradleyspencer.com/pbc1.gif" alt="powered by coffee blog logo 1" border="0" hspace="2" vspace="2" /></a> </textarea>

    but it turns out changing into this:

    <textarea rows="4" cols="40"> <img src="http://www.bradleyspencer.com/pbc1.gif" alt="powered by coffee blog logo 1" border="0" hspace="2" vspace="2" /> </textarea>

    Any thoughts on how to make this work?

    Thanks!!!!
