With or without the space, I can't seem to get it to work... (Using

Anup

Here is a sample HTML I tried...

<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<TITLE>Untitled</TITLE>
	<style>
	<!--
		input[type=text] { font: normal 80% arial;
background-color:#e7e7e7; color:"Gray"; }
	-->
	</style>
</HEAD>

<BODY>

<p>Enter Some text below.</p>
<input type=text value="Some Text Here">

</BODY>
</HTML>
