First I will introduce myself.
My name is Franck. I am a french developper who work on J2EE web-applications
at work. I am also working on a Konqueror plugin
( http://shift.freezope.org/konq_rellinks ) and other free softwares.
My mail was to ask for including the maxlength to textarea tag but somebody
just tell me that it is already done. I haven't seen the line "The maxlength
attribute applies to textarea controls." :)
So I will ask a question about the way browsers will implement it.
How a new line will be represented ?
On Mac new line = \r => One character,
On Unix/Linux new line = \n => One character;
On Windows new line = \r\n => Two characters.
Which style of new line will be used ? Will it be possible to include an
attribute to specifie the way new lines are handle or are there any ways to
done that with current HTML specifications ?
Thanks a lot,
