Problem with 'placeholder' attribute of textArea element

    General discussion

  • The problem is simple: when you set the placeholder attribute of a textArea element, when the element loads initially, the placeholder text is actually set as the value text of the textArea. To get around the issue I just say element.value = "" when it is loaded and everything works as it should.
