|Subject:||Text no-wrap in textarea|

I have a form written in HTML including <textarea wrap=off ... , and
the textarea will be narrower than some of the text lines in its value
That "wrap=off" means that long lines in the area are not wrapped but
continue invisibly to the right; they can be scrolled into view.
I have TxAr = document.createElement("textarea")
What code do I put to get a matching visual effect? Either setting a
property of TxAr or one of TxAr.style, I suppose.
( Actually, it's not essential that it look like a textarea; but
it must look and behave like a PRE with X & Y scrollbars. It
is not submitted. )
