This is my login page, when I view it under Firefox / Chrome the textboxes line up, but with IE6 the username field is wider than the password field. Any ideas why this would be happening?




<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="login.aspx.vb" Inherits="myproject.login" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >

<head runat="server">
    <link href="css/contentpage.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <title>Login</title>
</head>
<body style="background-color: Black">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div style="position:absolute; left:50%; margin-left:-146px; top:0%; margin-top:100px; width: 292px; height: 305px; border-style:solid; border-width: 0px">
        <img src="images/login.jpg" />
    </div>    
    <div style="position:absolute; left:50%; margin-left:-150px; top:0%; margin-top:450px; width: 300px; border-style:solid; border-width: 0px">
   
        <asp:Label ID="lblUsername" runat="server" Text="Username" Width="125px"></asp:Label>
        <asp:TextBox ID="tbUsername" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <br />

        <asp:Label ID="lblPassword0" runat="server" Width="125px" Text="Login" style="color:Black;"></asp:Label>
        <asp:Button ID="btnLogin" runat="server" Text="Login" Width="80px" />
   
        <br />
        <asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server" ForeColor="Red"></asp:Label>
   
        <br />
        <br />

You haven't said how much wider.  If only a small amount, use CSS to limit the form and input field margins

FORM  { margin:0px; padding:0px }
INPUT  { margin:0px; padding:0px }

If a lot more, it will be to do with your DIV layout.

nothing is necessarily "wrong" with it.  It is not a matter of right and wrong, it is a matter of the fact that some browsers will take more space for an input field if the space is there.  You have 2 input boxes of 125 wide in a DIv of 300px wide, so IE6 and other browsers will take more room if they have it.  First you need to try the form and input styling above.  Then you should set a max width to the input fields, and if steps 1 and 2 don't fix the problem, then narrow the DIV and put display:inline in its CSS styling.
