How do I edit the code in the search bot below to change the font and background colorfor "search" and "reset" buttons? I've applied a theme to the page. The "search for" appears in bimini, but I can't seem to get the two buttons to bend.
                                                                              Thanks,
                                                                               Don

<!--webbot bot="Search" S-Index="All" S-Fields S-Text="Search for:" I-Size="20" S-Submit="Search" S-Clear="Reset" S-TimestampFormat="%m/%d/%Y" TAG="BODY" b-useindexserver="0" S-Submit="Start Search" -->

Well, you can't separate ( via CSS ) the text input and the button input.

The best you can do is apply the styles to both, like this:

<style type="text/css">
input
{
      font: 13px verdana, sans-serif;
      background-color:#FFCC99;
      border:1px solid black;
      margin-right:10px;
}
</style>

Sean,
   As I'm a NEWBIE, could you tell me exactly where to put the code in relative to the bot?
                                                                   Thanks,
                                                                   Don

No problem, it goes right in the top of the page:


<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
input
{
     font: 13px verdana, sans-serif;
     background-color:#FFCC99;
     border:1px solid black;
     margin-right:10px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

etc...

OR:

If you can find the stylesheet that your theme uses, then you may be able to open the css page and add it directly. Since it's just the one page though, inline in the head section should be fine.

Let me know...

Sean,
   I can't tell how long I've been trying to fix this dude. IT WORKED!!!
   I want to bear all your children, but if I were you, I'd take the points and run.

                                                                         Thanks again,
                                                                          Don
P.S. This was my first question posted anywhere and I'm still in shock at the response speed.
