IE 6 & 7  Form text fields backgrounds appear yellow no matter what i do.
I have found on the web that it is related to Google Toolbar (offering fields that can be filled in).

We want to override this behavior.  Is there a way?

We would like the backgrounds to obey the CSS value specified.

    You could try to specify !important e.g.

    #text {background-color:#fff !important;}
