I'm not sure how deep the issue goes - maybe the browser behaviour
depends on the DOCTYPE? Were there any changes in the XML writers? Did
each JSF application since 1.0 have this (admittedly obscure) issue
with textareas? Did older, less standards-conformant browsers behave
differently? I'd like to hear if other people had/have this problem,
