The textarea tag has an option called wrap, pls read below (extracted from w3c.org)

<TEXTAREA NAME="foo" ROWS=4 COLS=40 WRAP=OFF>

        Carriage returns and line feeds entered by the user are ignored
and one line of text is sent to the server. No automatic wrapping is done,
so the user must scroll horizontally to see lines that extend past the
specified column width.

<TEXTAREA NAME="foo" ROWS=4 COLS=40 WRAP=VIRTUAL>

        Carriage returns and line feeds entered by the user are mirrored
on the screen, but only one line of text is sent to the server with the
return characters stripped out. Automatic wrapping as the user enters
text is performed.

<TEXTAREA NAME="foo" ROWS=4 COLS=40 WRAP=PHYSICAL>

        Carriage returns and line feeds entered by the user are mirrored
on the screen, and all characters the user enters are sent to the server.
In addition, automatic word wrapping is performed and CR/LFs are sent
where the user agent wraps the text.
