I've just been learning how to use style sheets and would like to be able to spice up the forms on a website I made. I really like how the login and password works on the www.me.com website. Would somebody be able to make an example on how that works so I could learn from it. Im also curious how they make the password input display a value of password, then when clicked it turns to a secure input.

Basically they set a subclass :focus on the INPUT to react to focus.
input {
	font-family: Helvetica;
	background: #fff url('/my/auth/loginForm/en/images/login.png?0b2cb6aac0dfc01459b60bc237bd1b5253d0c6e4') repeat-x scroll 0 -430px;
	border-top: 1px solid #707070;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #cecece;
	border-left: 1px solid #ababab;
	border-right: 1px solid #ababab;
 	font-size: 13px;
 	padding: 4px 3px 1px;
}
 
input:focus {
{
  outline-color: #ced2d5;
  outline-style: solid;
  outline-width: 1px;
  background-color: #fefeee;
  outline-color: #87929e;
}

Extraction complete...
Try this without the background image css code line :)

input {
        font-family: Helvetica;
        border-top: 1px solid #707070;
        border-bottom: 1px solid #cecece;
        border-left: 1px solid #ababab;
        border-right: 1px solid #ababab;
        font-size: 13px;
        padding: 4px 3px 1px;
}
 
input:focus {
{
  outline-color: #ced2d5;
  outline-style: solid;
  outline-width: 1px;
  background-color: #fefeee;
  outline-color: #87929e;
}
