With the font for input set to monospace, I have seen no problem.
Except for the displaying of output that the reader knows will be a
fixed small number of characters, IMHO you should always make the box a
bit bigger than the test. That way the user can see that there are no
further characters. For single "word"s, one space is enough; for
multiple words, one reeds two spaces after the last letter.
One can use, in at least one browser, F.X0.style.width="7em" ; but that
may not help.
Adrienne's views on sizes of input may be common; but they do not match
what my site needs. Granted; mine is not typical. I've just discovered
that the "Pop Up" button in my page gravity4.htm can give a DIV about
2,500,000 px wide, but not 3,000,000 px (in FF 3.0.6) : I wonder why?
There's a similar height situation. 3 Mpx height seems to show a bug.
I do have an application where the exact sizes of buttons matter, since
I have a close-packed set of 7*8 of them, and I want a text row to align
