text_area_tag should escape contents by default

Reported by Chris Mear | February 19th, 2009 @ 02:20 PM | in 2.3.4

text_area_tag currently does not HTML-escape its contents/value by default. However, the rest of the form tag helpers do escape their values, and the corresponding text_area method in FormHelper does it as well.

For consistency and security's sake, it seems like text_area_tag should escape its content by default too.
