Resizing of Form Fields When Using Percentages For Width Property

Wierd thing is happening during my xHTML development. When I set the width attribute of a text field in a form and use percentages, if the text field's value is extremely long, IE6 automatically widens the width of my text field. For example
-- input type="text" width="90%" value="Some extremely long value" -- IE6 will allow this text field to extend the full width of the value string.

Any known work-a-rounds for this? This is not a problem in Firefox. The reason I use percentages is that I have a fluid page, so that as the user adjusts their browser window, my form adjusts also. Thanks.
