dijit.form.Textarea + SimpleTextarea and cols attribute = incorrect behaviour

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: Douglas Hays

When I use cols attribute, each browser accepts another number of characters per row / line.

<textarea cols="10" name="ta" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.Textarea">0123456789012</textarea> <textarea cols="20" name="ta" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.Textarea">01234567890123456789012</textarea>

<textarea cols="10" name="ta" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.SimpleTextarea?">0123456789012</textarea> <textarea cols="20" name="ta" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.SimpleTextarea?">01234567890123456789012</textarea>

Is it bug or bad browser behaviour?

This is a browser "feature" dependent on font-size. Browsers size the textarea based on a standard font-size like monospace and multiply this by the # of cols, and then fit as many characters as possible given the actual font-size.
