There are a number of Javascript frameworks out there, and a few of
them have a lib that automatically increases the size of the textarea/
textbox as you type and get to the last line, a la Facebook. jQuery
and dojo have two implementations that I would consider implementing,
Yahoo! UI has one as well. Here are two links as examples, in case you
don't know what I'm talking about:

I'd like to implement an expanding textarea in my google gadget.
Unfortunately, there is no-one out there that has already done this
(that I can find) and published information on how to do it again. I'd
gladly do that if I can figure it out myself.

It's not as easy as including the jQuery or dojo libraries and using
them in the gadget: this proves almost impossible.

My questions:

1. Is this at all possible?
2. Has anyone done it? Where?
3. Shouldn't I really just leverage the iGoogle framework to do this?
4. Can someone point me to moeryday.html">

The easiest thing to do is to each develop on your own machine, and
email a zipped working directory (with .git/ directory) back and
forth. Unzip her files next to your working directory and pull her
repository in.

Now, if you just want to share code with your friend, you create a
public repository. It which will have read access, but not write
