    cool form fields

    I've been using normal form fields for awhile now, but I've realized that they cause spacing/table issues with html (i.e. form fields are different sizes in different browsers and stretch table cells).

    I noticed that http://www.gamespot.com using a weird kind of form field (you can specify the color, the size and more). It doesn't seem to stretch table cells and fits perfectly in the alotted space.

    Anyone know where I can find code like this (for this new field)?

    they're just using css to style their form fields. you can control the size and look of your form fields with standard style sheets. just play around with it a bit, to get what you like.

    form fields

    I've only used style sheets for text classes, and body tag information. Is there an example you can show me? Or a link to some tutorial?

    here is one example of what can be done with forms and css. I divided the attached form in half and made the two parts look differently just with css.
