Rounded corner textbox overflowing in IE

qdh asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05

I've been trying to get a rounded corner textbox working using CSS with a background image.

A sample can be found here: http://www.qecomm.com/header.html

It works fine in Firefox etc but in IE6 and 7 when you type too much text it overflows out of rounded textbox image. I've seen this method used on tutorial sites. But their textbox doesn't seem to overflow. It could possibly be the absolute positioning I'm using. I'm not sure. Hoping someone else has encountered this same problem.

Any help is much appreciated.
