Description

19 years ago
<input type=text> form element doesn't display the size attribute properly. The
size is always 4 characters larger than what was specified.

for example:

<form name="f"><input type="text" name="t" size="3"></form>

The form text field that appears on screen allows 7 characters to be input
before "spilling over".

The above snippet is all that's required to duplicate this problem; this is the
simplest case scenario.

reassigned to rods.  Rod has recently changed all the text control sizing code,
and this may already be fixed.

I tested the above snipet and it comes out one pixel short with GFX rendering
than with Nav 4.0. I'll look for that one pixel

We have duplicated the Nav algorithms for NavQuirks mode. Any mismatch on size
now was to do with the font metrics and the way Gecko attempts to match fonts in
