Yeah, that's what I understood as well (that he was talking about changing
from <input> to a <textarea>).
That doesn't seem correct behavior by Selenium, if so. <input> and
<textarea> are both different forms of text input. <input> (or <input
type="text">, which is equivalent) is for one-line text input, whereas
<textarea> is multi-line text input.
That's what the HTML spec says, but that's not how things actually work in
Selenium, and it's been like that for a long time. They don't think it be
like that but it do. You can see the test work with "button" not
"text_field" in the example above.
