Textarea text not displaying

Rebeckah's Treasures

I am having a problem viewing the text into the textarea box on my published blog post. I can see it fine in the editor, but for whatever reason it is not showing up live.


This is the code I am using and is not displaying the text:

<textarea rows="3" cols="20"><a href="http://www.rebeckahstreasures.com/blog/categories/saturday-link-party'>http://www.rebeckahstreasures.com/blog/categories/saturday-link-party" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.weebly.com/uploads/1/4/3/9/14399682/21012_orig.jpg" border="0" width="200" /></a></textarea>

What's even more perplexing is that I have another on my blog sidebar that works just fine.


This other one I have on my site works fine:

<textarea rows="3" cols="20"><a href="http://www.rebeckahstreasures.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.weebly.com/uploads/1/4/3/9/14399682/7703103.jpg" border="0" width="200" /></a></textarea>

As you can see the only thing different between the 2 codes is the destination link and picture link. I am at a loss of how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should use entities to substitute the angle brackets in your code
