On a DSP, I would like to be able to set the html size and maxlength properties. You can set them in the layout editor but they are ignored.
A good web form practice is to set the size of the field to the number of allowable characters. These two properties adjust the field size and prevent the user from entering additional characters. They have been in html for years and remain in Html5.
This two properties are important for creating a good user experience. You can set the style:width property but it requires translation of field size into pixels or ems and does not prevent the user from entering additional characters. Size and maxlength are designed for this purpose.
