Chapter 15. Forms > Affecting the Appearance of Forms

15.6. Affecting the Appearance of Forms

A <form> element tends to be rendered by the browser, giving the designer little control over the appearance of the controls themselves. Not surprisingly, the same element may be rendered slightly differently on different browsers and platforms, as shown in Figure Table 15-2.

If you really need to know the exact pixel dimensions of a form element on a specific browser or platform (perhaps for mock-up purposes), you can thank the fine folks at Webmonkey.com. They have taken the time to measure every last form element (among other browser display features) down to the pixel, and they posted their findings at http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/99/41/index3a_page5.html. Knowing the largest possible dimensions for a form element may be useful in planning a page layout.
