1) To change the height of an input text box:
<input type="text" style="height:50px;">
2) To change the mouse cursor for an element:
Istead of using default which would be an ordinary arrow, you could use many others:
wait = hourglass
default = arrow
pointer or hand = a pointing hand
crosshair = two crossed lines. It looks like a target sign.
text = the text cursor
3) To set the tabindex of an element:
<input type="text" tabindex="n">
n = number from 0 to somewhere in the 320,000's. This would be the order the user would tab to the element. If one element had a tab order of 1, it would be the second element tabbed to (The first one would be the location bar -- there is no way around this). If another element had an index of 2, it would be the next one tabbed to and so on.
