That's impossible. Text areas contain only plain text. You can later on transform that text so it becomes a link, but you can't make it so that when you edit it, there is a link.The only plausable way would be to use Flash, or other plug-in technology, which has such options. Or perhaps a REALLY complex JavaScript to "draw" such a field and it's rules. If you really need to have such an extra, it's better to use a plug-in technology.

It's also a good idea to spell 'textarea' correctly. You also have 2 style attributes, you should only have 1 that contains everything. There is also no CSS attribute called "FONT" without any properties, you can use a font attribute to specify all font properties, but you don't just write "font".

I'm saying right now you have this:style="border style:solid; FONT" style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Georgia"Seen another way, this:style="border style:solid; FONT" style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Georgia"Two style attributes, the first one has "border style" (it needs to be "border-style"), with solid, and then it just says "FONT" and doesn't do anything else. The second style attribute has a bunch of font properties. You should combine those two, fix the border-style, and remove the FONT, to say this:style="border-style:solid; font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt; font-family: Georgia;"Also, there is no "ilayer" as far as I know, you are probably thinking of an iframe.
