Have I caused myself any trouble by substituting code?

Original Code:
<td style="border-bottom: 2px solid #D8D8D8;"><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"><input name="q[8]" type="text" value="" size="50" maxlength="" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: normal; color: #000000; background-color: #FFFFFF; border: 1px solid #3399cc; vertical-align: middle; padding-left: 4px;" /></font></td>

New Code:
<td style="border-bottom: 2px solid #D8D8D8;"><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font>
<textarea name="q[8]" type="text" value="" size="50" maxlength="" rows="5" cols="50"style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: normal; color: #000000; background-color: #FFFFFF; border: 1px solid #3399cc; vertical-align: middle; padding-left: 4px;" />
</textarea>
</td>

Thank you for your advice.[url][/url]

This should work, although you should test it before going live. Keep in mind also that your code has a lot of extra stuff that isn't doing anything....basically this entire chunk:

Code:
<font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font><font color="#000000" size="2" face="Arial"></font>

So in other words, it was ok for me to substitute and place that scrollable text box code in and the only thing I was missing was the appearance (fonts, etc.) code?

Thanks for your help...

Yes, it is fine so long as you don't change the name= parameter. The code I pointed out to you can be removed as it essentially is not doing anything.
