Re: Input size in firefox and MSIE
A hundred characters is quite a lot.
I don't believe you. Show us the URL.
That's not surprising. <input size="100"> means that the width is 100 times
the "average width" of character - a sloppy concept, with many plausible and
even more implausible interpretations.
<input size="100%"> violates HTML specifications, so all bets are off. (It
is not invalid, though, unless you use a customized DTD.)
Why, oh why?
Why should it be "equal"? Do you expect people to compare its appearance on
different browsers and sue you if they detect a difference?
You _might_ want to use <input style="width:100%"> or something similar.
This is at least a possible solution. Maybe you have a question for it.
