If you define the size attribute of an input field, the browser is
allowed to refuse input after you entered the specified number of
characters. It's a nice gesture (?) that it's also influencing the size
of the field.

If you only want to provide a certain size, CSS is the tool of choice.

The same is true for the rows and cols specification of textarea, btw.

just making smalltalk,
