    I wan't to get rid of the right (white) color, but i can't seem to locate it in css or themes\..\comments.php

    it's weird, i don't see the white box part in Firefox, but it's show up in IE

    Do i have to hack core files?

    oki, here it is.

    in Firefox 1.0:


    in IE 6:


    and im using wp 1.5-beta-1 2005-01-03

    you can see it on default theme...by change (white) "#fff" to black (testing) "#000" in style.css

    #commentform #name, #commentform #email, #commentform #url, #commentform textarea {
    background: #000;
    border: 1px solid #333;
    padding: .2em;

    Have you checked the sizes - and chenged them around to play - of the comment area in wp-comments.php and the css ?

    Can you vary the size of the white area at all ?

    In IE, what happens if you type into that box ?

    That's because IE is adding a disabled scroll-bar area on the edge of your textbox. I forget how to fix this, but that's the reason.

    It might have something to do with setting the dimensions in CSS and then telling it something different in the <input type='textarea'...> tag.

    Perfect! you're right! unruly

    I found a solution below:

    #commentform textarea {

    thanks guys.
