cfinput - text box spanning serveral rows?

I have a form I wish users to fill in, with fields like the following:

NAME (single line)
EMAIL ADDRESS (single line)
SUBJECT (single line)
MESSAGE (mulitple lines)

Its the "message" field which is giving me trouble. I'm new to Coldfusion and so far I can only use CFINPUT to resemble a single line. This message field needs to be a large box holding 200 chars or more.

Can someone explain how to do this with ColdFusion as I'd like to use client side vaidation on it.

CFINPUT currently doesn't allow for multiple line input boxes
Refer to http://livedocs.macromedia.com/cold.../Tags-pt161.htm


The closest that ColdFusion directly supports is CFTEXTINPUT which is requires the client to download a java applet.
Refer to http://livedocs.macromedia.com/cold.../Tags-pt312.htm


As an alternative, you can use the HTML manually... try the TEXTAREA form object:
<textarea name="mybox" cols="50" rows="10">This is the default text</textarea>
Refer to http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/int...rms.html#h-17.7
