newforms textarea widget produces invalid HTML by default

"cols" and "rows" are required attributes for textarea, and not included in default output of the newform widget. The attached patch fixes this, with updates to tests.

(I actually have commit access, but I wanted this to go through someone else, as I've not been around for a while and I don't know much about newforms)

By the way, I meant to mention that the default values I've chosen are the ones used by oldforms.LargeTextField

(In [4961]) Fixed #3929 -- Newforms Textarea widget now always includes 'rows' and 'cols' attributes, even if you don't pass them in, for HTML correctness. Thanks, and welcome back, Luke Plant
