    i have everything else the way i want it in the css file but i can seem to get the writing in the input boxes to appear white instead of black

    looking on the page i see
    PHP:
    <div id="gsContent" class="gcBorder1">
    <
    div class="gbBlock gcBackground1">
    <
    h2Login to your account </h2>
    </
    div>
    <
    input name="g2_return" value="/photos/main.php?" type="hidden">
    <
    input name="g2_form[returnUrl]" value="/photos/main.php?" type="hidden">
    <
    div class="gbBlock">
    <
    h4Username </h4>
    <
    input id="giFormUsername" size="16" name="g2_form[username]" value="" type="text">
    <
    script type="text/javascript">
    document.getElementById('userAdminForm')['g2_form[username]'].focus();
    </script>
    <h4> Password </h4>
    <input id="giFormPassword" size="16" name="g2_form[password]" type="password">
    </div>

    <div class="gbBlock">
    Lost or forgotten passwords can be retrieved using the <a href="main.php?g2_view=core.UserAdmin&amp;g2_subView=core.UserRecoverPassword&amp;g2_return=%2Fphotos%2Fmain.php%3Fg2_view%3Dcore.UserAdmin%26g2_subView%3Dcore.UserLogin%26">recover password</a> page
    </div>
    <div class="gbBlock gcBackground1">
    <input class="inputTypeSubmit" name="g2_form[action][login]" value="Login" type="submit">
    <input class="inputTypeSubmit" name="g2_form[action][cancel]" value="Cancel" type="submit">
    </div>
    </div>
    but i cant find any such entry in the css file - i have tried putting

    .giFormUsername { color: #ffffff; }
    .giFormPassword { color: #ffffff; }

    under the only h4 admin bit i can see but it doesnt work, as you guess my coding skills are rather pap, so any advise would be good
