Controlling the height of form text fields - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

hello, I have a design problem. I have a search window on a colored background that is supposed to line up with the main nav bar. The problem is that the text field window displays differently for each browser. The height is different, and Mozilla stretches the vertical height of my background color to almost double of what it is intended to be. Does anyone know how to control this. I know that little can be done with the look of the text field window, but what about the extra space below the window?...

    hello,

    I have a design problem. I have a search window on a colored background that
    is supposed to line up with the main nav bar. The problem is that the text
    field window displays differently for each browser. The height is different,
    and Mozilla
    stretches the vertical height of my background color to almost double of what
    it is intended to be. Does anyone know how
    to control this. I know that little can be done with the look of the text
    field window, but what about the extra space below the window?

    Can you show us a URL? We need to see code to determine what could be causing the extra spacing. It could be any number of things.

    Thanks for your response. Here is a URL. [url]http://www.imageexplorer.net/test/test.htm[/url]

    As you will see the height of the text field is different for each browser.

    *sigh* All that bloated code just to display a search box and a few navigation
    links.

    Try adding this to your CSS and let me know if it helps:

    form { margin:0; }
    input.searchtext { vertical-align:top; }

    Yeah, Sorry about the messy code. I deleted everything else on the page.
    I'm a little confused about how to apply the code you sent. Sorry man,
    I'm a beginner, and trying to learn this stuff on the fly. Where do I place
    this
    into CSS?


    Thanks for your help.

    Surely you can figure that out yourself. I just gave you a key, its up to you to open the door.
