Hi all,
Just wondering, why these attributes are necessary(to validate) even though it's easy(and cross browser friendly) to apply the width and height of a textarea via CSS?

best regards,

i guess if they removed these as valid attributes then older websites that are not going to be updated are left with a little problem.

because not all user agents understand css, :)
semantic means really semantic, not only model separate and presentation.

lynx don't know css, :)
