Creating a Text box issue

I’m using Codepen, and I’ve been trying to create a textbox using html, and I’ve tried everything I could think of, but nothing seems to happening. Here’s the code I’m trying to use now:

Please help.

You haven’t put a closing > on the textarea. Adding that will stop it filling it with the string version of the HTML that follows it as it currently does.

Also you put some HTML in the JS, that won’t work.

Also you need a submit button if you want to send the email with that form. Edit: ah, you’ve done that now
