When i read an html file with fread and inside that file there is a <textarea> tag than isn't possible to print(echo) the variable filled with fread inside another <textarea> tag cause the tag </textarea> in the variable close the <textarea> tag where is going to be printed!

Reproduce code:
$MyText='<textarea>MyTest</TextArea><br><input type=text>Not into the textarea tag!'

<textarea> echo $MyText;</textarea>

Expected result:
The variable $MyText should be fully showed inside the <textarea> tag also if contain tags of the same type.

Actual result:
It happend that variable $MyText isn't fully printed into <textarea> tag but it stop when is printed </textarea> tag.
The rest will be showed like normal html.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Not a bug, read about htmlspecialchars().
