Forms- Text Area Input

In the previous video, we learned how to use a <datalist> element and a set of <option> elements that represent recommended options to choose from. In this video, we will learn about the <textarea> element, which can be useful when you want to allow users to enter a sizable amount of free-form text, such as a comment or a feedback form.
