I've tried for ages to do this, and searched (I'm sure it was asked recently too) but to no avail.
Right now, I have the default Search steup:
What I have been trying to do is get this:
INPUT words | SEARCH button
I have an appropriate sized .gif, but instead of it displaying inline (I have #searchform set for display:inline;) it displays underneath and at a much enlarged size.
I'm lost right now on this - though I've a feeling I can't see the wood for the trees !
