Would like UI form fields to contain more than one line


Under Atahualpa 3.53 viewed in Firefox 3:

In the user interface, areas where the user enters css styles are one line in height. This is generally ok, but many areas like CSS Inserts can have a dozen lines or more of css. I would like to suggest making the input boxes multiple lines at least where it can be expected that the user might input many lines.

In this thread, it was suggested to disable plugins to see if they are causing a conflict.

But I checked the code. Specifically, on the Footer UI page, the Footer Style textarea code is:
<div style="width: 732px;" class="mooarea">
<textarea name="footer_style" id="footer_style" class="growing" cols="60" rows="1" style="overflow: hidden; height: 16px; line-height: 16px; width: 732px;">...

I would like the rows="1" to be changed to rows="2" (or more) to indicate that I have multiple lines of CSS code hidden away in that field.

The only occurrence of 'rows="1"' is hard coded in the source at line 580 of functions/bfa_ata_admin.php. I changed the code to 'rows="3"' and to 'height: 48px;' and this expanded the input boxes vertically.

So I suspect this is a design issue as opposed to a plugin issue (please correct me if I am wrong.) Even if it is a plugin issue, it would be a good idea to harden the code/css against side-effects from plugins.

Thanks for looking at this issue,
