I've noticed, text boxes on web pages always look the same on my Mac, whereas on Windows, they can be styled with CSS. Is there a way around this?

Pretty sure CSS should be styling them with the exact code. Can you bring up the same text box in FF on a mac and a PC and show they are different? I have had no problems styling my own in the past..

I think Matrix means that Safari does not show input and textarea stylings the same as FF, Opera, etc.

For example open my contact form in FF and Safari

On my machine it styles the inputs in FF, but in Safari they are just white.

For me, both Safari and FF display as a plain white textbox with that ugly beveled effect.

On Windows, that box has a 1px light blue border and no bevel.
