Description Gérard Talbot 2005-08-12 16:52:09 UTC
The <input id="uri" name="uri"> for the results page has no specified size. In
Mozilla Seamonkey 1.0a rv: 1.8b4, I get to see the first 25 characters of the
uri (it defaults to 28 characters with MSIE 6) and since most webpages starts
with "http://www.", then I get to see only the first 14 characters of what could
distinguish a webpage from another. Most of the time, I can not see the filename
of the webpage, not even the first characters. It's ridiculously annoying if I
have submitted a few webpages for validation. I have to click in the input, drag
to the right to read the webpage's filename.

Consider now the submitting page. The <input id="uri" name="uri" size="50"> is
specified to 50 characters.

I can upload 2 screen shots if needed.

Actual results: <td colspan="2"><input id="uri" name="uri" value="[uri]"
type="text"></td> at line 70

Expected results: <td colspan="2"><input id="uri" name="uri" value="[uri]"
type="text" size="50"></td>  at line 70

I chose Templates as component and lowered Priority to P3. Please correct or
adjust as you wish.
