which all browsers are you looking to support? if IE is excluded, then -webkit-gradient of css3 can be a solution.

    {width:400px;
    }

    #text_box
    {width:300px;

gurvinder372,

it would be great if I can make two versions, one in CSS 2 and one in CSS 3
so, I will check the browser first, if IE7 and older, then let's change the style to CSS 2 otherwise lets keep it in CSS 3

Take a look at this code and see if it will help you a little bit further.  

The textbox is the <input> in your code.  
The button should have an anchor tag inside of it and then you should make that a tag a block level element.  

Try the code below and see if that helps at all.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
	<head>
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
		<title>Aventric Technologies</title>
		
		<style> 
			.txt-box {
				background:url(http://www.aventric.com/new/images/form-bg.png) no-repeat top center;
				width:289px;
				height:35px;
				font-size:20px;
				float:left;
				border:none;
				padding-left: 10px;
			}
			.submit {
				background:url(http://www.aventric.com/new/images/form-btn.png) no-repeat top center; 
				width:86px;
				height:34px;
				display:block;
				float:left;
				border:none;
			}
		</style>
	</head>
	
<body>
			<form action="gdform.php"> 
				<input type="text" class="txt-box" /> 
				
				<input type="button" name="submit" class="submit" value=""/>

			</form>
</body>
</html>
