At least in Firefox I'm seeing an undesirable behavior in textareas. My question is how to fix/avoid it.
Here's the problem. Go to a textarea in Firefox. (The ask.metafilter ask a question one will do fine.) Type enough characters to fill a whole line of the textarea e.g., kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk...
Now put a single space in front of that line. It moves the line one line lower instead of just putting a space in front of the characters which is what I would prefer i.e., treat a space like any other character. [more inside]
In a web survey form, I need to automatically check a radio box if the user clicks on the text field. [more inside]
