input[type=text] {
  background: red;
}

with

<form>
<input type="text">
</form>

works perfectly in my copy of Mozilla and Konqueror, but not Opera. I
believe Opera doesn't support the changing of form fields (something
to do with the widget set it uses) and IE doesn't support attribute
selectors.

Currently I believe you have to resort to classes if you want IE
support.
