Ellipsed text in TextBoxes

Hello guys,

We should use ellipsis effect for all TextBoxes?,
when selected item text is longer then inner input.

Bug Sample:
Fix Sample:

In Bug Sample user don't know that value is longer, because it doesn't look broken.
But in Fix Sample user can see ellipsis effect, so he knows that text is longer.

This CSS rule is applied for TextBox?, ValidationTextBox?, NumberTextBox?, NumberSpinner?, ComboBox?, FilteringSelect?, Select, DateTextBox?, YearTextBox?, YearMonthTextBox?, MonthTextBox?, DayTextBox? and more and more.

.dijitTextBox .dijitInputInner { 
	white-space: nowrap; 
	text-overflow: ellipsis;
	-o-text-overflow: ellipsis;
	-ms-text-overflow: ellipsis; 
	overflow: hidden;

It's nice enhancement for UX. I can prepare some more testcases if you need.

Probably worth considering given that it's an easy CSS change. Risk is potentially breaking CSS on older IE versions.
