DefaultPreferences has set EDITBOXSTYLE to width:99%. But IE7 and IE8 work fine with a style set to 100% in a stylesheet. So this preference (introduced 31 May 2002) is no longer needed.

EDITBOXWIDTH is overridden by CSS (either the skin CSS or the style set by EDITBOXSTYLE).

EDITBOXHEIGHT does still work.

Steps to take:
  1. Move EDITBOXSTYLE and EDITBOXWIDTH to a section "Deprecated preferences"
  2. Change the default value of EDITBOXSTYLE to auto
  3. Update the documentation topics that list these settings
  4. Mark existing tests with the deprecation date

Remember these settings have no meaning NateditPlugin being the default from 1.2.0 on.

So you agree to deprecated these?

-- ArthurClemens - 29 Oct 2012

yes?

This has already ended up semi-deprecated in 1.1.x, as the javascript settings override the topic settings. Once a user has dragged the corner of an editor window, those settings are remembered in the cookie, and the topic based settings are ignored. This is causing confusion, e.g. Item12607. I've marked the settings deprecated in 1.1.9.
