            Bug ID: 20465
           Summary: input controls styling should apply box-sizing even in

Standards mode test case

http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/rendering.html#form-controls

Currently the spec says that the following style should only be applied in
quirks mode:

input { box-sizing: border-box; }

It appears that many browsers apply this in standards mode too. IE10 follows
the spec and only applies this in quirks mode but we've found a live site that
depends on this in standards mode and has a workaround coded for IE.

We propose that the spec should be updated to reflect what browsers do today
and we intend to update IE's behaviour to match other browsers (i.e. apply this
rule in both quirks and standards mode).

Currently this is likely to block CR since there will not be two interoperable
implementations.
