The <INPUT Type="file"> element on this page should be displayed as a single,
long  text input field, with a browse button at the end. When "width:100%;" is
set in the Style attribute, however, the result is a normal-sized text input
field, the browse button, and then a white bar occupying the rest of the area.
This is most notable on a non-white background colour.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Include style="width:100%" attribute in a <INPUT Type="file"> tag
2. Visit website

Actual Results:  
<INPUT Type="file"> element is rendered incorrectly; a short text field, a
submit button, then a white bar.

Expected Results:  
Display a long text field, then a submit button.
