The maxlength and rows attributes of the textarea entity can be modified appropriately to suit the needs of a web page application.
Newlines entered into the field occupy two character positions (i.e., each newline is encoded as a CR and LF pair).
Cut-and-paste operations (e.g., the Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V hotkeys) may not work quite as expected in some browsers. For example, MS Internet Explorer 7 allows the user to paste characters in the text field beyond the 100 character limit. Multiple paste operations do not seem to be affected by the programmatic limit enforced by the zTextEntry function. In such situations, the field remains grayed-out until enough characters have been deleted so that there are less than 100 characters in the field.
