Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2004-03-11 06:52:00 EST
This appears to be a bug in internet explorer. We are using symbolic
font size names throughout CMS, eg 'small', 'x-smal', 'medium', etc.
There are no specific styles set against the <select> or <input> tags
so they should inherit font size from their containing element, but
they do not appear to be doing this. I experimented with setting an
explicit font size, but that only works for '<select>' elements - text
fields ie <input> elements still don't re-size. The only way I can get
them to reliably resize is to switch to using percentage sizing
instead of symbolic names, but this causes problems in older (ie pre
v5) versions of Internet Explorer.
