           Summary: Scrollbars in <textarea> should gracefully shrink if
                    they don't fit.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 417.x
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: mark at humanesoftware.com

When the user types enough text into a <textarea> form control, it
automatically adds a vertical and/or horizontal scrollbar. Sometimes, depending
on the size of the page font, the size of the control doesn't allow the control
to draw itself, so it appears as a disabled scrollbar. Since MacOS X has
several scrollbar sizes, it would be nice if the size of the textarea scrollbar
were reduced, when necessary, to allow the control to be rendered and used.

The following HTML demonstrates this:

<head><title>TextArea Scrollbar demonstration</title></head>
<p>Use the Cmd-'-' and Cmd-'+' to make the text larger and smaller. If the font
is large enough,
the scrollbar is rendered and usable. If the font gets too small, the control
is disabled.</p>
<textarea cols=30 rows=5 wrap=virtual>
