I'am using Spoon Browser Sandbox if it has something to do with it...

Probably invalid bug-report. Your test-case (as you yourself mentioned) works in every major browser so if this Spoon Browser Sandbox messes with the default behavior of the sandboxed browsers you should file a reproducible bug report to the Spoon team.

I installed the Spoon Browser Sandbox plugin and tried your test with FF4b2, IE8 and Opera10 but it worked in all those sandboxed browsers.

Maybe retest again and add which browser exactly you use to launch the Spoon Sandbox and which browser this test fails in when sandboxed.

Missed that you specified IE6/7 in the bug title as not working. I went back and tried IE6/7 via Spoon Browser Sandbox on your testcase too. They both displayed a textarea with the text "It works!" so I can't reproduce your bug.

Maybe the Spoon plugin was updated since or something else is the cause. But it is neither jQuery nor IE6/7

Both jitter and I have been able to update the value of textarea across all major recent versions of IE (6,7,8 and I just tested 9) through val() without any problems. I think that this is a case of the Spoon Browser SandBox being responsible for the bug (or an older version of it).

Flagging as worksforme.

textarea.val does not work in IE8 and below ONLY when that value was generated automatically, (php session value, etc)
