    Safari doesn't like input text boxes...

    Hello folks,

    I've got a input text box. Simple. Now, I'm trying to move the text over in the text box more to the right. Padding works in IE and FF. But not Safari. So, I now am using text-indent and it works both in IE and FF. But not Safari. How can I move text over in a simple input text box for Safari?

    How can I fix this in Safari?

    You cannot apply any style to form elements in Safari or Konqueror.

    Please post either a link to the page in question or less ideally the full code.

    For the sake of "consistency" Apple at one point decided it would be best if the OS drew the form controls in Safari, making them - as pointed out - essentially unstylable.

    This is, however not the case for all form elements. Apple seems to be adding more and more form styling support with each new update of Safari.

    You may very well not be able to do what you want but let's at least take a look.

    Safari is my day to day browser so I have come to know a good many of its quirks.
