Goal

In our eChannel application, we have a list applet that requires 2 columns to be defined as text areas because of the amount of verbiage in these fields. The list only shows one line of text until you click on the field, which then opens the text area, consuming almost all of the list applet, even though the text only uses approx. 3 to 4 lines, and rest is open space. I was able to modify the style sheets to add enought height to the rows to show all of the text without having to open the text area, but the text does not wrap, still showing as 1 line of text that does not wrap. I can't use Plain Text property, as the style sheets would change all the list applets using plain text to be too tall, and I've tried setting the column's "HTML Attribute" to "wrap=hard", which does not appear to work with OpenUI. The result of this not working is that you can not read both of the columns at once, since the application can only open one text area at a time. We need to be able to see multiple rows of text in a field with a list applet.
