In my webapplication i have a lot of input-fields with an id containing a colon (:). e.g. : "myForm:name"

I know, that i have to escape the colon in css to make it valid, but internetexplorer does not seem to handle this kind of rule correctly. See example below:

-- test.css ---

  | #a\:b {
  | 	width:400px;
  | }

-- test.html --

  | <html>
  | <head
  | <link rel="stylesheet" href="test.css" type="text/css"></link>
  | </head>
  | <body>
  | <input type="text" id="a:b"/>
  | </body
  | </html>
Firefox show this input-field 400px wide, IE not (IE is ignoring the rule completly).

My Question: How can i make the inputfile 400px wide on FF AND IE without using the size attribute of the input-field?
