    <textarea rows="10" cols="50">
    1349
    13 Candles
    45 Grave
    Abigor
    Abruptum
    Absurd
    Agalloch
    Akira Yamaoka
    Amorphis
    </textarea>

    With that HTML code, is there a way that I can bold certain band names? Putting the <b> </b> tags there don't do anything, it justs looks like
    <b>Abigor</b> in the text box.

    not possible, a text area just shows text and html isn't parsed.

    Why does this have to be a text area?

    You could try something like:

    HTML Code:
    <div style="height:200px;width:400px;overflow:scroll;background:#FFF;border:1px solid #000;">
    	<pre>
    		1349
    		13 Candles
    		45 Grave
    		Abigor
    		Abruptum
    		Absurd
    		Agalloch
    		Akira Yamaoka
    		Amorphis
    	</pre>
    </div>
    Although you can't edit that from your browser... (If you need to, let me know what you're trying to do and I can come up with something).

    Well, check my Myspace page at www.myspace.com/vampiricyouth

    Under the Music list I have a lot of bands and I'd like to bold the ones that are a step above the rest.

    In that case you don't need a text area so why not use the suggestion i posted above.
    You can even edit the background, font color, width, height, etc. to match the rest of the site.
