I'm am developing a web application and have made some buttons that look similar to the windows xp silver style buttons, my problem is that all through the site we have these nice shiny buttons, but if the user uses a different theme or colouring default buttons look different to our own butons, things like drop down menues, scroll bars etc,
is there a way to specify how all these look on a webpage?
we're only developing for ie 5.5+ at the minute

are you talking about images or standard buttons, if they are standard buttons then use css style sheets and set the colours that way.

You can use CSS to change the colors, height, width, border size, etc. of all of the basic controls such as the scrollbars, dropdown menues, listboxes, and command buttons.  

You can also use your own graphics in the place of command buttons, by writing a little bit of javascript.

I hope this helps!

So, you're saying that I stole the points away from sshutt?  I'm pretty sure (s)he gave me the points out of his/her own free will.

I could be wrong, though.

Ok, dude... let's calm down.  I didn't steal anything from you.  As I said before, I simply confirmed what you said AND expanded on it.  

I wasn't the one that assigned the points.  I honestly wasn't expecing to get any points.  I thought you would get the points since you answered first.  I had no control over where the points went.

Sorry.
