    Please excuse an idiotic design question, but...

    I'm considering developing a site for a client who would like to use the xp, flat-tools look.

    How do I do this?

    Surely there's a way to replace the standard silver objects with xp-like versions, without massive graphic re-design on my end? Anyway, I hope so...

    By the way, I'm working on a w2k machine using DreamweaverMX. Dreamweaver has a "flat button" extension, but I'm looking for a more complete set of text tools, including text boxes, scroll bars, etc.

    Thanks for your help.

    John

    No. More like this. The scroll bar is still 3-d, but text boxes & buttons are flat.

    on the other hand...

    On the other hand, that chromeless window script is really nice. Not exactly what I was looking for, but definately useful!

    Thanks!

    oh, i think i know what you mean. try putting this in the head section of your html document:

    <STYLE TYPE="TEXT/CSS">
    <!--
    input { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 9pt; font-weight: normal; color: #3333FF; background-color: #CCCCCC; border: #000000; border-style: solid; border-top-width: 1px; border-right-width: 1px; border-bottom-width: 1px; border-left-width: 1px}
    -->
    </STYLE>

    if you want your textareas and select boxs like this then you'll have to make styles for them too.
