Prevent text inputs growing as you type in IE6/7.
Applying *overflow:visible to button/input causes text inputs to grow to fit their content, even if an explicit, fixed width is applied. It was originally included to remove excess inner spacing on buttons and submit/reset/button-type inputs in IE6/7. Fixing this bug in IE6 requires dropping the fix entirely because there is no way to avoid it being applied to text inputs. If there is a need to fix this excess spacing bug in IE6, then it should be done using a class that is applied to the necessary elements. For IE7, the excess spacing fix can be moved into the ruleset that targets button and submit/reset/button-type inputs. This prevents text inputs from growing.
