By that do you mean the autocomplete attribute, or the actual feature of
autocompletion?

1) I do not believe any browser supports the autocomplete attribute on <select>
or <textarea>.

2) I believe Safari will in some cases autofill values in a <select>. This
occasionally gets broken, but we will autofill country or state <selects> when
filling an address for instance.

3) I don't know of any browsers that will autofill <textarea> under any
circumstances.
