-> I'm using Twill 0.7.4 and I don't get a proper response for a form that 
-> has a text area field.  Is this an issue or is it not supported?
-> The code for the textarea in the HTML is:
-> <textarea name="myfield" rows="6" cols="60"></textarea><br/>
-> Thanks!

Hi, Peri,

textarea's should be supported.  Try:

go http://www.idyll.org/~t/transfer/test.html

and you should see 

Form #1
## __Name______ __Type___ __ID________ __Value__________________
   test         textarea  (None)       howdy

Do you have the whole HTML for the page?  Maybe it's not in a form or
