I agree, though the problem would not have even occured if someone had not
put in the style="width:100%". IE's width=100% attribute works ok, it's just
the style and stylesheet handling that blows.
There is already a way (In fact two ways) to define the width of text entry
boxes, please can the style="width:100%" be completely removed?
The difficulty of tactical maneuvering consists in turning the devious into
the direct, and misfortune into gain.
