Try CSS:



<FORM action=/cgi-bin/lance/search.cgi method=get>

<INPUT
      style="BORDER-RIGHT: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-TOP: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-LEFT: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-BOTTOM: #066c9f 1px solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ecf1f5"
      onfocus=this.select() size=14 value="Find Find" name=keywords>

<INPUT
      type=image height=30 alt=Search width=22
      src="refferals_files/search.gif" value=Submit border=0 name=go2 style="vertical-align: middle;">
      </FORM></P>

How about putting it in a table?  You can set the vertical alignment.  

<FORM action=/cgi-bin/lance/search.cgi method=get>

<table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
<tr>
<td valign=middle>
<INPUT
      style="BORDER-RIGHT: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-TOP: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-LEFT: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-BOTTOM: #066c9f 1px solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ecf1f5"
      onfocus=this.select() size=14 value="Find Find" name=keywords>
</td><td valign=middle>
<INPUT
      type=image height=30 alt=Search width=22
      src="test.gif" value=Submit border=0 name=go2>
      </td></tr></table></FORM>

If you have white space around your image then it may be hard to center without seeing the image.

The CSS code will work - you may find it off by a pixel or 2 depending on your browser. You can also use the absmiddle attribute:

<FORM action=/cgi-bin/lance/search.cgi method=get>
<INPUT style="BORDER-RIGHT: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-TOP: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-LEFT: #066c9f 1px solid; BORDER-BOTTOM: #066c9f 1px solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ecf1f5"
      onfocus=this.select() size="14" value="Find Find" name="keywords">
<INPUT type=image height="30" alt=Search width="22" src="refferals_files/search.gif" value="Submit" border="0" name="go2" align="absmiddle">
</FORM>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Image inputs create usability and other problems. I suggest you use a standard type="submit" and apply CSS to the input to achieve the desired appearance:

<input type="submit" class="submitButton" value="Search">

.submitButton  { width:125px; height:55px; background-image:url('referrals_files/search.gif');  }

Thanks all.

I used CSS as Barry62 suggested but had to use the absmiddle code to get it exact
