Subject Re: "Nice" form stylesheets?
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2006 23:02:45 GMT

Using underlines for user input brings me back to my MFS days at a rather 
large telecom,
Two things we have used in the past for user input, although I readily 
admit that I am far from an expert on the subject:
1.  User entry boxes formed by either using table cells with borders or 
SVG.  For any 3D effects or special symbols, SVG fits the bill.
2.  Similar to what you are already doing, use underlines formed by either 
leaders or SVG (again for 3D effects).
