Maxlength is not respected when value of the text input changes dynamically with javascript. Firefox 2 behaves as expected and the value is truncated.

<input type="text" maxlength="5" id="test" />
<script language="JavaScript">
document.getElementById('test').value = "longer than it should be";
</script>
