[thelist] Internet Explorer: Text Fields

sure, I tried to reduce the code down to something real simple.  In the code
I'm generating form elements then filling them automatically.  While trying
to work up an example I see that it may be the actual call to the JavaScript
causing the problem.

Here's an example:

<table width="200" bgcolor="blue">
      <input type="text" name="myname" size="10" style="width: 100%">


  document.all.myname.value = '123456789123456781234567812345678123456789';

The more complex version I started with exhibited the same behavior that
hitting refresh on the above example does.

Load this in then try hitting refresh.  You may see that the text field gets
longer in ie 5.0


thanks for the help.
