JP, Try using size=15 as well as maxlength=15. size determines the visual width of the box maxlength determines the maximum number of chars you can type into it HTH David David Landy, IT Consultant Business Intelligence Somerfield/KwikSave +44 (0) 117-301-8977 david.landy at somerfield.co.uk <mailto:david.landy at somerfield.co.uk> Don't be afraid to try something new.

I have built a login page with the standard format of two input fields one type=text the other type=password obviously, both 15char wide. Now when viewed on my Win2000 machine everything appears fine. However when viewed on an XP machine the bottom, password, box is noticeably wider than the name box above it????? <snippett> <table> <tr> <td>Customer Id </td> <td><input name="login" type="text" maxlength="15"></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Password</td> <td><input name="password" type="password" maxlength="15"></td> </tr> </table> </snippet> Anyone have any light they can shed on this? If you like I can send you a link to the offending page offlist.
