In "Authors should not specify the maxlength attribute on input elements whose
type attribute is in the Number state.", shouldn't this be the "size"
attribute? Note that doesn't raise warnings (but instead errors)
for either case.

OK, I just noticed that bug #9760 and bug #12781 are relevant. But yet "render the text field with a useful width" doesn't describe maxlength's behavior. I've changed the title of this bug as such.
Comment 2 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2011-09-21 20:59:20 UTC
Yeah I can add size="" to this temporary list.
