Why my iframe & my textarea are not getting along?

Why my iframe & my textarea are not getting along?

Why my iframe & my textarea are not getting along?

(OP)
Mind you due to the work environment technical restrictions I can only use IE8.
The OS is WinXP.

For some reason that I'm failing to spot, I can't have both things at the same time. Is either the iframe tag or the textarea tag. I wonder if it's a limitation of IE8, or I'm just doing a "big NO NO". I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me with this ;)

RE: Why my iframe & my textarea are not getting along?

(OP)
I failed to mention this, just in case:
Notice that if you are to remove the Comments tags from the iframe tag the textarea tag will no longer show.

RE: Why my iframe & my textarea are not getting along?

That's because you never close the iframe. Iframe aren't self closing, so essentially everything after the iframe declaration becomes its content, but because you define a source for it, it replaces the misappropriated content so it can't be seen.

Close the iframe, and your text box should show up.

CODE

<iframe ...> </iframe>
