SO I have had an interesting question put to me, and for the life of my I can't get any CSS tricks to work, so I thought jQuery might be a more elegant solution anyway.. So I found this jQuery Plugin For Smooth Auto-expanding Textarea - autoexpand | Free jQuery Plugins and I thought that is cool.

 

I'm the first one to put my hand up and say I am not a developer, and it is times like this, that I wish I had some moderate dev skill.. but alas..

 

So I'm throwing down the gauntlet.. What is the best way to have a multiline text field without using scroll bars that expands and I fill in more text... ?
