If have a couple of Question/Suggestions concerning HTML Forms.
Since i have only been involved with WWW for a short time, these questions
might probably been asked several times. (Sorry but i need to know)

Is it Possible to put a formated Line of text into a scrolled list
(with select and option)? <pre> is ignored, an i haven't found another

Why isn't there an attribut like COLS in the TEXTAREA which would
define the width of the list ? It would make the layaout more readable
and uniform. For example if a script writes results of a
databasequery into a list. With no entries in the list the scrolled
list wouldn't look that strange as now. What would speak against it ?

Another question, why isn't it possible to have serveral submit-buttons
with different Actions (URLs) in one form,so those actions could use a
common input field or an selected field in a list?

Thanx in advance
