A jQuery plugin to make textarea be resized automatically to fit its contents.

DEMO

Why I wrote this plugin

A precedent plugin on this feature is found here:
http://www.technoreply.com/autogrow-textarea-plugin-version-2-0/

However, the plugin is not so good at multibyte character.
I, as a Japanese, thought it could be enhanced with using .scrollHeight to detect textarea height.
