There is a bug in preholder format. Site www.cherlock.ru. Screenshot is here http://i.prntscr.com/t7wx5u-nQzmZf7U1SxBWeA.png

HTML code: <textarea id="question-textarea-promo" class="form-control" rows="8" style='resize: none' placeholder="Bla-bla-bla space

bla-bla-bla?"></textarea>

===================================

I try many way to fix this trouble:


1. CSS: textarea#question-textarea-promo::placeholder {

  white-space:pre-line;
 /*  color:red;*/
  }                                   - The color:red works, white-space - don't

2. CSS: textarea#question-textarea-promo::-moz-placeholder {

  white-space:pre-line;
  }                                              - don`t work

3. <textarea style ="white-space:pre-line"> - don`t work, of course
