CSS Question

I need to make a Text Area behave like a DOS prompt

Basically so it wraps and spaces are placed like they are in a DOS / CMD window...

This might display a little better...

(Script Demos are all still available in the Collection link above.  I lost some individual demos due to a server crash.)


The absolute closest you can get with just CSS and a textarea alone is to add
white-space: break-spaces;
word-break: break-all;
You will still have one remaining bit of jankiness: when you get close to the right edge and try to add a space after a letter (knowing it will go to the next line), that letter will also move down along with the whitespace character.
