Excuse me for a dumb question but is there any way to reduce the height of an input text box?

For instance, I would like to have the abiliy to increase or decrease the following line:

<TD><INPUT TYPE="TEXT" SIZE="5" NAME="OpenBal" VALUE=""></TD>

I can increase or decrease the default height

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

You are after some CSS to achieve what you are after.

You will need to use CSS.  You can also control the font-size as well using the em standard, or by pixels (px).  If you dont need to alter the font-size just remove that part from the code below.  Depending on your needs, here are 3 ways to impliment it:

This will change the size of ALL your input tags:
<style type="text/css">
<!--
    input{height:24px; font-size:1.2em;}
-->
</style>

Lets say you only want to do one box, and not all of them, replace the style with this:
<style type="text/css">
<!--
    input.largebox{height:24px; font-size:1.2em;}-->
</style>

And then add ...  class="largebox" ... to your input tage.

Those are the best two ways.  If you want "quick and dirty" then you can apply the stlye to the tag itself, like so:
<TD><INPUT TYPE="TEXT" SIZE="5" NAME="OpenBal" VALUE="" STYLE="height:24px; font-size:1.2em;"></TD>
