They aren't; they just look like they are.  Bing removed the borders from the text box and put a background on a parent to make it look like that.  Yahoo made the submit button overlap the right edge of the text box.

Here you go... The 2 images and the attached as "code" html page need to be place in the same folder.
The images can be changed. This was just proof of concept.    
Some thing to go off of.

Correction the images need to go into a folder names "images". The folder should be in the same dir. as the html file.
