An html textarea tag will not render html.. it will only show text, so your
html will not be rendered in the text area, it is not designed for that.

What you could do is a preview pane with a div tag and use javascript on the
client side to populate the div tag using the innerHTML property of a div.
This would then render the html. Or display the html in any other way... it
won't be rendered in a textarea, as far as I know.

hope this helps
