Difference in border appearance in IE between an ASP Drop Down List and a Text Box.

Take a close look at the attached image.  This image is a screenshot from IE 8 (v 8.0.7600) of a web form I just built.  Notice how there’s a disparity in the border-style between the Drop Down Lists (which are select elements at the browser level) and the Text Boxes (which are input,  type = text elements at the browser level).  It looks as if IE is attempting to slightly recess the text boxes.  I’d like to eliminate the disparity.  Is it as simple as tweaking the border-style and border-width properties in the CSS sheet?  Or, is there more to it than that?  

It’s worth noting that disparity only exists in IE.  The border style associated with the two types of controls looks identical in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
It's also worth noting that I've tried the following (and a few permutations on the following) with minimal success:

border: solid thin black;
