    Default Referencing something in a textarea for use in a java script

    Is there a way to pull something that is typed into a text box and use it in a java script? I want to be able to do something where I can type a word (say "house") into the html textarea and have the javascript recognize that and perform a function like open a wikipedia article on houses (assuming I reference the article ahead of time). This way I could type anything into the textarea and have it retrieve the page or function that I had already referenced to be tied to what I type in.

    Java != Javascript.
    You need a Javascript forum.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
