Safari crops all (maxLength=5 and 123456)
this attribute specifies the maximum number of characters the user may enter.
All tested browsers (MSIE, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari) follow this line. However all except safari are too precise and allow user to enter 5 chars maximum, but server markup and client code can fill whatever value. Safari forces all (server markup, client script and user) to obey 5, too long string "123456" received from server markup input type text="123456" set by client code i.value="123456"; i.setAttribute("value","123456") or typed by user will always end up CROPPED as 12345. All others will show overflowed "123456" (even Chrome ;-)).
