    Hrm there is probably an easy answer for this question but I cant find it anywhere ;/

    I am pulling text out of MySQL database and need to be able to edit it. How do I get this text to show up in a textarea to be able to edit it? value=$variable does not work for a textarea like it would for a text box or button.

    No problem retrieving the data, just getting it into an editable state.

    thanks :)
