Text goes up and down in the login control's textbox

Not sure how to debug this but I've attached a screenshot of what I'm seeing. I have a JQuery slider and asp.net Login control. I type in the username and the text is not centered. If I place my mouse cursor inside the textbox and click...that text goes up and down...

Anyway I can center the text?

This is my code and i can copy/paste the entire aspx page, if needed

 <div id="login_area">
             <asp:Login ID="Login1" Orientation="Horizontal"  LoginButtonStyle-CssClass="submit_text_link"   
            LoginButtonText="Submit"  OnAuthenticate="OnAuthenticate"    LoginButtonType="Link" TitleText=""    DisplayRememberMe="false" 
            TextLayout="TextOnTop"   FailureText="Invalid username or password"  runat="server">
             
             <LayoutTemplate>
               
                <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" id="Login1" style="border-collapse:collapse;  border-style:none; table-layout:fixed;">
                    <tr>
                    <td><label for="username">Username:</label><br />
                    <asp:TextBox  ID="UserName"  runat="server"></asp:TextBox>&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
                    <td ><label for="password">Password:</label><br />
                    <asp:TextBox  ID="Password"   runat="server"  TextMode="Password"></asp:TextBox>&nbsp;</td>
                     <td valign="top"><br /><asp:LinkButton id="Login" CommandName="Login" CssClass="submit_text_link" runat="server" Text="Submit"></asp:LinkButton>
                     </td>
                    </tr> 
                                                        
                    </table>
                    <table>
                     <tr>
                      <td><asp:Literal ID="lmsg" runat="server" ></asp:Literal></td>
                      <td></td>
                      <td></td>
                    </tr>
                    </table>
                                 
             </LayoutTemplate>
                             
            </asp:Login>

I am pretty sure the reason is some of the CSS is playing up introducing a padding into your textbox. Use developer tools of use Firebug for firefox and inspect the textbox in question and I am sure that you will be able to figure out the CSS that is playing up.

I can try to take a look at it if you have an online version for this.

I think it's that <div id="login_area"> that's doing it. If I remove it, it wont happen. But i do need that class there.

I got it, it was this

#login_area input[type=text] {
    line-height: 2em;
}

#login_area input[type=password] {
    line-height: 2em;
}
