I want to make a webpage like ""

basically I like the text boxes when the person clicks on them, the button also when it highlights, and if when a user does not put in correct information there is a red box that appears later when the user clicks over it.

You can do this with dhtml (css and javascript). You can use javascript form validation to display the errors in red if the form is not filled in correctly.

Here is a little bit of code that shows how you can use styles:

<script language="javascript">

Click in the text box : <input type="text" onclick="changeColor(this)"/>
<input type="submit" style="border: 1px solid green;color:green"/>
