Hi there, i have quite a large application which predates IE7, it displays perfectly in IE6, however in IE7 the input boxes, such as text and dropdowns have shrunk!

My CSS is:

input, textarea, select
{
      font-size:11px;
      height:13px;
      font-family:Tahoma, Garamond, Arial;      
      color:#293E69;
}

How do i correct that so it works the same in IE6 and IE7?

Many thanks

put this in your html code, just before your inside your <head> and </head> tags but after your main CSS file is referenced

<!--[if gte IE 6]>
       <style type="text/css">
         input, textarea, select
         {
             font-size: 11px; /*change*/
             height: 13px; /*change*/
         }
      </style>
<![endif]-->


Note: you can add other properties such as width's etc and alter heights and font-sizes until you can make the inputs look the same as IE6

I have about 200 aspx pages.

Will that above code work in a .css file?
