Ok, here is the question:

Take a look on screenshot:
http://www.terrainformatica.com/htmengine/screenshots/tablebackgrounds.png
At the bottom you will find three edit boxes with captions "from" , "to" and
"subject",
they are declared in HTML and rendered in my experimental browser as:

<P>from:<INPUT ... style="width:100%%" /></P>
<P>to:<INPUT ... style="width:100%%" /></P>

<P>subject:<INPUT ... style="width:100%%" /></P>

How to achieve same layout in current or proposed CSS?
If we introduce calc() what formula would be?

And what about this:
<P>from:<INPUT ... style="width:25%%" /> to:<INPUT ... style="width:75%%"
/></P>

May be I missed something?
