Hi Experts!

I have the following code bellow. How one can limit the width of the input tag? I mean when I enter a larger text than the input size, at page refresh the input field accommodates the entire text instead of keeping its original width.
This is a server side application, this is why by refresh the input text comes back in the page input field.


<style type="text/css">

    table { width: 960px; }
    .g25 { width: 25%; }
    .g90 { width: 90%; }

        <td class="g25">Text</td>
        <td class="g25">
                <input type="text" class="g90" id="myText">
