Form Fields spurious error

(hope this doesn't appear twice - slight problem at first attempt)

A very strange problem: on a couple of forms i have created on different sites, when I view thm in IE some (not all) of the form fields are recessed (shaded border at top and l'hand side) and with background colour = #ffffcc.

This does not happen with Firefox or Netscape - all filds are plain boxes with no background colour.

This may have started when I copied a form with a table in it that had background colour = #ffffcc.

I've check form, table and form field properties but can't fathom it. Is it a registry problem? Any ideas?

The google toolbar will shade form fields that can be automatically completed with its autofil option.

Others may have the same funcionality.

Thanks Harristweed (again!). I've cleared the autofill option on the toolbar and it's sorted it. Another mystery solved!
