ie7, form elements & text size

Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 has a somewhat odd behaviour with how it displays form elements when you adjust the text size.

Oddly I don't get the spaced font effect when using the Text Size menu, but it does occur using zoom.

Hello there... Form elements (including input type="text" and textarea) were always excluded from the font size adjustment on IE: unless font-size style was set. IE 7 is no different in this aspect from IE 6. The regular workaround is to set font-size:1em for inputs.
