This is probably no help, but isn't there a way to open an editor (e.g. the
value of $EDITOR) from a Web browser for such a text area? If there is, then you
should be able to use emacsclient (or gnuclient) to do that editing with Emacs.

That's one of the things emacsclient is for: to let you open Emacs from some
other app. Dunno if Web browsers let you do that easily, though.
