Without being able to access it, it's difficult to say, so I'm not sure
if this applies to your problem, but: a common reason for text not
appearing in a textbox is that it has not been escaped. eg. this:

  <textarea>
    <em> boing </em>
  </textarea>

is invalid and should be:

  <textarea>
    &lt;em> boing &lt;/em>
  </textarea>

If you've got an </html> or </body> inside the textarea it is, I guess,
conceivable that a browser *might* do something different depending on
whether further information has been buffered. Perhaps.
