Although the primary use for htmlArea on our web site is for users to markup a textarea, our server side script needs to send the content of the form to many destinations most of which want marked up text, but one of which is wireless email with no html rendering capability.
Need both HTML and Plain TEXT output
Is there a way in htmlArea to generate both an HTML marked up version, as well as a plain TEXT version of the textarea right at source ? We could have another hidden field in the form for this purpose, and the htmlArea could populate both.
At the moment, we have to detag a copy of the HTML form on the server side, and that for us has been error prone. It would seem that this could be done easiest at the source.
Other suggestions are welcome.
(The server side is a JSP page)
