    I'd like to completely fill the width of a cell in a table with an input
    field. This code works ok:

    <table width=75%>
    <td width=50%>xxxxx</td>
    <td width=50%><input type=text style="width:100%"></td>

    The problem arises when the <input> has a value="text" clause. If "text" is
    very long, then the input grows to accommodate it. It will even make the
    table wider than the screen.

    How do I get the input to be the specified size, and not grow? I'd like the
    text to scroll horizontally within the text box, as it does when no
    style="width:100%" has been specified.
