    (Textarea must be set to accept line breaks with wrap property.)

    Try "\n" or "\r\n".

    document.form1.textarea1.value+="data data data" + "\n";
    or
    document.form1.textarea1.value+="data data data" + "\r\n";

    I left it as a separate string, because I assume "data data data" is actually some variable somewhere.

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
