[xsl] hard/soft return problem with form in xml/xsl

I'm having trouble letting the xml/xsl display hard and soft returns in a
textarea.  If one works the other doesn't and
vice versa.  Wrap = off/on doesn't seem to fix the problem.  I'd like it to:
1. allow the user when entering text into the text area, that it will wrap
and not continue on
(with attribute wrap="on" set...this works but it prevents hard returns by
the user when displayed.
2. allow it to be display correctly when a user puts in hard returns
(with attribute wrap="off" set...this works but now wordwrap of soft returns
does not work
3. allow the text to be "resized/wordwrap" within the text area if the
browser window is changed in size.
Sometimes the user will print the screen and having half the text there is
no good. (even if i could have it a default of 800x600

Right now I have to pick the lesser of the 2 evils...do I want someone to
enter a long piece of text so that hard returns will 
work or do I allow it to wordwrap but hard returns then don't work.

Any suggestions...code is below..

Filename: abc.xsl

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
<xsl:template match="/">
<form name="eform" action="abcdefg.asp" method="post">

         <textarea id="txtReason" name="txtReason" style="WIDTH: 100%"
Filename: abc.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="abc.xsl"?>
      <txtotherrequest>this should wrap into the text box for both hard and
soft returns if someone wants 
          to make changes etc. etc test of wrap djfldjfkdj fdj ldjfld fldj
