I tried to put formatted text out to the browser when it was inside a
textarea and got to
look at markup.  This might just be an HTML question.  Is there a
construct that will let
me bound the size of text display with rows and cols  like <textarea>
but also let me
html-format the internal text?  I suppose I could hack up a table to use

Maybe there is a CSS solution where I sort of roll my own <div> that has
some properties
of limiting size.  Theoretically there could be a way.

Of course there is a way.  I've even used it, a while back.  overflow:
scroll, or
overflow-y: auto.  Et cetera.
