It works in IE 7 also using only text resize (zoom of course works), except
the submit button stays the same when increasing text without zoom.

Subject: issue 2262 and resizing form controls


During the telecon that ended a short while ago, Sofia mentioned a technique
for resizing radio buttons and check boxes when text is resized. The
techniques uses em values for height and width of these controls. Because
attribute selectors are not supported by some browsers (or browser
versions), the technique unfortunately requires class attributes. I have put
together a simple examples. (The class attributes are on the input elements,
but I guess it would also be possible to put them on an ancestor element.)
However, the technique needed testing in more browsers. I have tested this
in Internet Explorer 6, Firefox 1.5, Firefox 2.0 and SeaMonkey 1.1 (all on
Windows XP), and the controls resized as expected when text was resized.
Opera 9.0 already does this without the CSS rules.
If people could test this in other browsers and on other platforms, that
would be much appreciated. See the attached test file

Best regards,
