The specified IHTMLCurrentStyle::width and IHTMLRuleStyle::height determine the border box of the element.

The content box is computed by subtracting the IHTMLRuleStyle::padding or IHTMLRuleStyle::border widths of the respective sides from the specified width and height.

This is the default behavior of IHTMLCurrentStyle::width and IHTMLRuleStyle::height in IE5 mode for replaced elements and input elements, such as buttons.
