Text box for answer seems to be slightly undersized when full width of text box is used.

There seems to be some kind of error associated with the text input for Studyplan questions based on this lesson.

Here is the question:

"_________  des légumes." (Carrots are vegetables.)

HINT: "carottes"

[End of question]

I type the following reasonable answer:

xxxxxxxxxxxxx

On my screen, as soon as I type the thirteenth "x", the first "x" is slightly truncated at the left.  (The remainder of the question is pushed to the right, which is expected behaviour.)

If I arrow left to completely expose the first "x", the final "x" then becomes partially truncated at the right. Adding further x's are correctly expanding the text box, but either the initial character or the final character are partially truncated.

If I adjust the screen font size using Ctrl++ or Ctrl+-, the truncation persists.

Additional question:  Why are there quotes round some of the questions (see my example above, with the final quotes after "légumes").

On the specific Studyplan test page that I'm currently looking at, 2 questions have quotes and 8 questions have no quotes. Without being condescending, I'm sure the average guy will not notice any difference, but for techies who are trained to look for tiny clues (think "Boeing 337 Max"), these things can be irritating if they are unintentional and random. I spent some time trying to figure out what I was missing.

Thanks.
