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>

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
so
