Percentage-width input field bug in IE

Thanks for the reply, but this doesn't really help, since the field 
needs to take up 100% of a pre-defined column, and we can't modify the 
entire layout; this code is embedded into existing blog templates (like 
blogspot, movable type, etc.) with pre-defined css.  Setting the width 
in pixels also works to get around the issue, but doesn't get to the 
root of the problem, which is why it is happening in the first place.

Thanks anyway, though.
