Using this technique, the textarea does render properly on Firefox 0.8 
*only* when the pages are served with the "application/xhtml+xml" 
content type.  As soon as I changed the content type to "text/html", I 
got the incorrectly rendered textarea.  This is the test document I'm using:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" 
<html xmlns="">
<form action="">
<textarea name="ta" rows="10" cols="10" />

And the HTTP headers:

HTTP/1.x 200 OK

I noticed this as well.  To help deal with this, I added the charset to 
the mime type on the serializer:

mime-type="application/xhtml+xml; charset=utf-8"
