Subject: Editing buttons?

Does anyone know if there's a way to edit the buttons in the default template? I have a dark background and light text, but the text is practically invisible in the default buttons. Is there a location to change the button graphics?

Buttons can be styled with CSS. In the style.css for the Professional theme, I see this:
PHP Formatted Code
input,
submit,
td {
  color:#000000;
}

This should, among other things, define black as the text color for submit buttons.

I did see that. I got it so you can read the text now, but I was wondering if you can input graphical buttons in there instead of the browser defaults. I'll give it a go tonight.

Thanks again Dirk.

Sure. Can't tell you how off the top of my head, but you should easily find a tutorial out there somewhere.
