Are you sure the textarea is within the bounds of the form?

Maybe the textarea does not have a valid name?

I was referring to the name, not the ID.

Note that it's difficult you help you if I cannot see what you have done.

Well I managed to sort it out. First of all I held the mouse pointer over each element to make sure they were within the frame boundaries, and they all were. Next I selected the frame and cut it from the page but the text area stayed where it was, I then pasted the frame back and the text area was behind the frame so I selected it and placed it back within the frame making sure that the frame border highlighted to confirm it was within the borders.
Not sure what was wrong, but it works now.
Thanks for the input everyone.

Cheers
