Hi all, i have a website and i have a simple email script, but this problem also applies to other things to but i will use that as an example. Ok on my site is my Email Script and all the text boxes are all badly intergrated and this is the same for any boxes like that, and i wanna know is tere a way to put like a border or something around it?

do this

<p><form action="FormToEmail.php" method="post"><table border=1><tr><td>Name</td><td><input type="text" size="30" name="Name"></td></tr><tr><td>Email address</td><td><input type="text" size="30" name="Email"></td></tr><tr><td valign="top">Comments</td><td><textarea name="Comments" rows="6" cols="30"></textarea></td></tr><tr><td> </td><td><input type="submit" value="Send"></td></tr></table></form></table>

you notice in the table tag I have a border=1, that will set up a border for you, but to take it one step more you can apply css to it.

would that mean changing my wole sites css? becuase i aint touched that file for a while and not farmiliar with it

this is directly from the source code

<style type="text/css"><!--.form label {width:4em; float:left; display:block; margin-right:0.5em; text-align:right}.form .submit input {margin-left:4.5em}.form input {font-weight:bold}.colours input {color:#781351; background:#fee3ad; border:1px solid #781351}.colours .submit input {color:#000; background:#ffa20f; border:2px #d7b9c9 outset}.form fieldset {border:1px solid #781351; width:22em}.form legend {background:#ffa20c; border:1px solid #781351; letter-spacing:0}.form fieldset p {margin-top:0}//--></style>

you can put that directly on the doc or do a external css for it.

then when you want to apply those settings to the form do this

<form action="" >

what class will do is read from the css that you input and it will show up however you design it.

your best bet for great free templates is http://www.oswd.org/ the best part about these are some sweet designs that are coded perfectly, mind you, you might have to code stripping ot adjust to your liking but it gives you a good idea on how to have a perfect coded site.

or if you want you could design your template in straight gfx or flash.
