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.
- It will not adjust the font size of form elements unless that form element has a CSS font-size rule set on it.
- To make the element show up like it would otherwise, you need to set the font size to ~90% of what IE would otherwise use.
- The box size of the element scales as you change the font size, except for "smallest" which it conflates with the box size for "smaller"
- Font rendering ain't particularly clever. Notice the extra white space between the "be" and "haves" in the last example ... at some, but not all text sizes
