Changing the textbox to multiline is achieved by deleting the HTML input
element and creating a textarea element in its place. There is some
ancient code that might copy the value from one to the other but offhand
I don't even know if it gets a chance to run. Even if it did work you
would probably want to preserve the selection range.
