> This is a rendering bug in IE that I've run into several times and I was

>       <head><title>IE Rendering Bug</title></head>
>       <body>
>          <div style="position:absolute;width:300px;height:100px;border:1px
> solid black;padding:5px;">
>             <form action="myPage.cfm" method="POST" id="myForm">
>                <input type="text" name="myInput" style="width:100%;" />
>             </form>
>          </div>
>       </body>
>    </html>

> regardless of text being typed in the box.
