Re: scrollbar for tables with foreign language characters
I've had something like this, too. This is a IE specific bug. I some cases
IE calculates the width of the INPUT from the prefilled VALUE. I think the
CSS attribute 'width' with '100%' or 'auto' causes this bug.
I have no fix for this at hand - the webapp that has this problem uses
TEXTAREAs (for different reasons) when the text get longer than X
characters, so the bug is not triggered anymore.
