Add a new TextArea field?

Add a new TextArea field?

I'd like to add a new text area field to my form using DataAssist. I understand from another thread that I must:
1. create a new column in my db
> done. I called it: ProductIngredients
2. create a new form field in the Products_Insert.php doc (and the update one too)
>uh. not done. I can see <input> elements for a text field, but I'm not sure how best to add a text <em>area</em>.
>UPDATE: No worries here - a typical text area method worked.
3. update the insert record server behavior using DataAssist
>I'm pretty sure I can manage this once I have the text area.
>UPDATE: I'm not sure of the exact steps here to validate and update the record. Could someone please outline how best to do this?
So, if I just add a text area like any old form, will this work or is there something extra I need to include in order to have the little text editor included?
