Hmm, maybe we're talking at cross-purposes.

Sure you can enter the following string into a textarea:
  This is <STRONG>important</STRONG> text.

But does it display with bold "important" inside the textarea?
Not that I know.  It's just plain text, that happens to be HTML.

I thought, the original poster wanted his customers to input
formatted text directly, being display formatted, too?

Regards,
