I'd suggest makign a copy of this at www.yourdomain.com/css/overlay.css

You can then edit it now.

Download a firefox plug in called Firebug, it lets you inspect elements. Make the search and get the box that floats in your browser, then hit F12 to launch firebug. Click on Inspect element on the left of the firebug window.

You will now see that the elements in the main window go a blue colour when you highlight them. find the element that is floating and left click.

in the firebug panel you will now see the code and on the right its css. Play around with the css to make the desired effect. When you have the panel how you want. edit your local copy of overlay.css

Hope this helps. let us know.

<form action="" id="searchbox_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e" onsubmit="return false;">
  <div>
    <input type="text" name="q" size="40"/>

  </div>
</form>

<div id="results_014225229805397440211:2nf7dwv2h4e" style="display:none">
