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>
