Large Oversized Search Box or Text Input Box

I simply cannot find any code to do this via css…

I used to see these box’s on alot of ‘2.0’ type sites but now that i want to find one i cant run across one.

Can anyone help me with some code snippets…

When creating an oversize input with regular size text, IE tends to put text at the top. To make the text vertical-align center use line-height equal to the input height. For example:


input{
height:2.5em;
line-height:2.5em;
font-size:1em;
}

CSS Code:

input[type=text] {font-size:xx-large}

tried that with no success

do you want large font-size in the text box or do you want big size of the text-box?

Can you post what you tried?
