                    defaults to 0 and Gecko defaults to -1.  Of the three
                    behaviors, IE/WebKit makes the most sense, and I'm

Comment:
textarea.cols should default to 20, and textarea.rows should default to 2. 
IE8 and WebKit do this; Opera defaults to 0 and Gecko defaults to -1.  Of the
three behaviors, IE/WebKit makes the most sense, and I'm submitting a patch to
get Gecko to line up with it.  Test case for browser behavior here:
data:text/html,<!doctype
html><script>alert(document.createElement("textarea").rows + " " +
document.createElement("textarea").cols);</script>
