You problem lies in the html that you are outputting.

For normal html <input> tags, you use the "value" attribute to initialize
the default display.  For <textarea> tags, you do not use the "value"
attribute; instead, enclose what you want displayed between the openining
<textarea> tag and the closing </textarea> tag.  For example:

<input type="text" value"Please edit this textbox">
<textarea>Please edit this textarea</textarea>
