INPUT size differences in 5.5 vs 6.0

P: n/a
Hi all,
I am having an issue with different versions of IE and the size of
text in an INPUT field.
Basicly I have a field that looks like:
<TD colspan="2"><INPUT class="fieldAlignRight" TABINDEX=12 size="9"
maxLength="10" type="text" name="BirthDateTextField"
onFocus="promptSave(true)" value="<%= birthDate %>"></TD>

The class fieldAlignRight is defined in the CSS as
INPUT.fieldAlignRight {font-size:10pt;
font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; text-align: right; }

This works fine in both browsers. Our data (12/12/2003) would always
display perfectly. It would be flush against both sides of the text
field. When I changed the CSS to have a SMALLER font, the data does
not fit anymore. It becomes "too big" and gets cut off on the right
hand edge...

INPUT.fieldAlignRight {font-size:9pt;
font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; text-align:
right; }

BUT, the data only gets cut off in 5.5. In 6.0 everything works
great.

Can ANYONE help me?
