    I have an explanation, but it can't really be explained.

    Hmm, that's inexplicable. Have you tried telepathy or Yiddish?

    Nobody really knows what you want to do, but I'd like to make these
    observations. You have a table with no specified width and then you put
    in a form element with a width of 100%. What do you expect? Give the
    poor DOM a break.

    The issue also happens when I specify a width for the table.

    I find it interesting that the table expands, even though the form
    element stays its proper size.

    As far as I can tell, the gist of it is that the third link calls the
    same function called by the first link followed by the same function
    called by the second link. But it causes something else, something
    weird, to happen that doesn't happen if you click the first link and
    then the second link.

    In both IE7 and Firefox, another strange thing is that when the input
    field is created with width set to 100%, it slightly overlaps the right
    border of its containing table cell. If I set overflow="hidden" for the
    cell, it fixes this in Firefox but not in IE7.
