text-transform in <input>

P: n/a
Does anyone have thoughts on whether the text-transform attribute of input
tags should apply to the displayed text in the browser? It's not
*enclosed*, which I think is what the CSS2 spec refers to, and KHTML
doesn't do this, but Gecko and IE both do.

An example may be found at
http://fshn3152.foods.uiuc.edu/~fgasper/test.php

If you look at this page in IE or a Gecko-based browser, the input field's
text will be in allcaps, but in KHTML-based browsers (Safari, Konqueror)
it won't be. All three engines render the paragraph in allcaps.

Just looked with Opera 7.23 on Windows - the input is changed to
uppercase but the textarea is not.
