#6546 closed feature (worksforme)

1.3.2 .text() function does not return result for textarea in Chrome 5, Firefox 3.6

Pretty simple bug. $('#textarea').text(); returns the inputted textareas text in IE8, but returns nothing in FF3.6 and Chrome 5 (beta). .val(); does what is expected, not sure if this is a bug or by design. Only tested with jQuery 1.3.2

Recommend a test case be made for this.

The correct way to get the text inside a textarea is to use its value attribute, which .val() does. I have changed this to a feature request but it may be closed worksforme.

var variable = $("textarea#mytext").val(); doesn't work too! The val() method returns an empty string.
