Text Field appearance
Hi,

This is really an html question and I'm not sure if there is a GT forum for such questions but as this problem is related to my DBMan SQL html templates I will post it here.


I've noticed that different browsers (IE and Netscape)display the size of text fields on a form at different widths even though the size is specified in the html.
Is there anyway to control this?
It's causing me headaches with my table layout.
Also, the charset effects the text field width as well. My page is used with several different languages and an iso-8859-1 charset displays the widths diffrently to a UTF-8 and a Shift-JIS. Would it be advisable to set the charset to UTF-8 as it should work with almost every language?
Any advice would be most welcomed.
Thank you.
Simon.
