Do you mean show the output of the parsed HTML, or displaying the contents of the
textarea as source code? If the latter, then you need to use the entity references &lt; and &gt; for the left and right-angled brackets:

<textarea>&lt;img src=""&gt;</textarea>

Use HTML entities, like:

<textarea>&lt;img src="some.gif"&gt;</textarea>

<edit>DOH! Man you're fast ...</edit>
