Unlike us, Japanese users know what they are doing when using an IME 
It is actually very annoying to, say, submit double-width characters 
to a server that expects ASCII. I think this is a good suggestion and 
my gut feeling is it should be an attribue, too much to do with 
functionality to be CSS.
