Default Phone wouldn't recognize a rich-text web form??

I was using my son's Fascinate (haven't gotten mine yet - 'nuther week or two) and logged into a web forum I frequent on my PC. I tried to initiate a new thread, but the phone wouldn't recognize the rich text field where you type in the body of the post.

The Title field was a simple text box - I selected the field, and got the orange highlight around the text box and the keyboard popped up.

The Message Body field, though, was a rich text field. I selected it and got the orange highlight, but that vanished in a second and the keyboard never showed up.

Is there a way around this?

I post from my Fascinate every day.

Going from one text field to another can be done in more than one way. I like to put in the tread title, then use the device's back key (not the browser "back" feature) to view the page with the thread title but not the post yet, then touch the posting text field and create the post.

It's an extra step compared to hitting "enter," but seems more reliable going from one text field to another.

Thanks for responding, Frisco. Unfortunately, I'm still having trouble.
I finally got my own Fascinate, and had the same issue there.
It only seems to affect one specific forum (not this one),
so I re-posted this question in a more general forum to attract a wider audience.

It's at:
Does anyone else use "answers.microsoft.com" and have trouble posting?

Is it possible a different browser on my phone might render and handle this text field a bit differently? Any suggestions on which one(s) to try?

Update (4/16):
I've tried Opera, Boat, and Dolphin - no go!
