    Question Colored Text Fields in Forms

    I have visited several web sites that contain forms, and their form fields that allow text have a colored shadow inside of them and/or colored border around them. I have checked the source code to see how this is done, but the codes are hidden in linked style sheets that I cannot view.

    Does ANYONE know where I can find the codes/scripts for these enhancements?
    Thanks!

    Have you tried simply browsing to the URL where the CSS file is located?
    That makes it show up in my browser at least.

    Actually, yes... I have tried this method, but the main folder name where these files are located is usually not included in the path. I keep getting "Page Not Found" or I am rerouted to some sort of search engine. It's frustrating because I know your suggested method works, I have done it before.

    Maybe it's just an error on my part, but I have tried this several times and I have gotten nowhere. I will try the link you posted. At any rate, thanks for your suggestion(s)!
    Thanks!

    Okay... ask me if I feel like a dumb@$$! No really, go ahead and ask...!

    I tried your suggestion again and was able to view one of the the style sheets in it's entirety. The shadow is done with a background image, which I was not aware you could do with a form text field.

    Stop laughing at me now and accept my gratitude.
    Thanks!

    Actually, you can view a linked stylesheet. Just follow the path by viewing the HTML document, and then type it in the location bar. Your computer will either download it (in like a second, no long download) or it will display it in Notepad, etc.

    To change the color of a text field (textarea too), in the CSS script, put:
    input {
    background:background color or image path;
    font-family:Times New Roman;
    font-weight:bold;
    text-decoration:none;
    color:text color;
    border-color:color;
    }

    That should work, and if it doesn't, than you probably aren't using a CSS browser.
