Color for <select> and <input type=text>

<select> and <input type=text> would draw their buttons with Windows button color whatever the style of my web page. The same is true for <select> scrollbar and borders. <input type=radio> and <input type=checkbox> have Windows background color and border color, too.
Is there any trick to change that? The solution should work for IE, I don't care about other browsers.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Oops, please replace <input type=text> with <input type=file>. Text box shows the styles OK but the file upload input has a button that does not honor my styles. Sorry for that.

This example shows how to change the background and border color of a select and file input. It also shows how to change the background color of a radio button and checkbox. Radio buttons and checkboxes cannot change border colors and you cannot customize the actual button of the file input.

<html>
<head>
<style type=text/css>
.redbg {background: red; border-color:green;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
Select
<br>
<select class=redbg>
<option>Option 1
<option>Option 2
<option>Option 3
<option>Option 4
<option>Option 5
</select>
<br>
<br>
Checkbox
<br>
<input type=checkbox class=redbg>
<br>
<br>
Radio Button
<br>
<input type=radio name=radio1 value="1" class=redbg>
<br>
<br>
File Input
<br>
<input type=file class=redbg
</body>
</html>

Well, thank you but there is nothing new in what you wrote.
That's easy stuff and that is not why I offered 500 points.

Your question is a bit vague. The background colors are changed, per your request. Can you tell me exactly what you want?
VihmapuuAuthor Commented:
I want to change
<select> scrollbar and button color
<select> border color
<input type=file> button color
<input type=radio> inside background and border color
<input type=checkbox> inside background and border color

i wonder if this can be done. probably requires some javascript or vbscript too in addition to CSS.
ASP.NET and Visual Studio might give you more control over those too, but i don't know.
