When using <textarea placeholder="long long value which ..."> the text does not wrap.
The spec isn't very clear about correct handling of line-wrapping, but I can't imagine this is correct behavior.
Test case: http://jsfiddle.net/6hb7g/o
Confirmed changeset 72052 <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/72052> (Bug #49452) regressed placeholder text wrapping in <textarea>.

A derivative of <http://jsfiddle.net/6hb7g/>.
Regression -> P1
ok. I'll have to figure something out. I really don't want to go back to swapping the text in and out, but maybe we do need a RenderText object for the placeholder to get this right.
Do we know of any real world sites that have placeholders that hit this bug?

Chrome does not wrap the text (thereby hiding part of it), while firefox does.
an other public url is for instance : http://www.mygaytrip.com/guide/lords-south-beach-hotel
The text area at the end it correct in current Safari (5.0.5) but break in nightly webkit
