How do I change the field length in Joomla RSForms?  The style formatting for the field is:

<tr>
      <td align="right" valign="top">{fieldtitle}{validationsign}</td>
      <td valign="top">{field}</td>
      <td valign="top">{fielddesc}</td>
</tr>

Can I change this somehow?

Thanks in advance.

So, should I paste the

Ah right,

In the additional field attributes enter something like  style="width:50px;"

This will change the size of the actual textbox.
