Search text box not displaying text

Hello all

I would appreciate a pointer in the right direction 

I am using the andreasviklun-04 skin and have enabled the search box placed it in the layout.master and it appears where I want it.

however I must be missing something in the css as the text is either transparent or white on white as entering text does not display however if you do enter text and then search you get results hence the text must be white on white or transparent.

I cant find the right css element to correct this 

Can anyone assist? To view the problem navigate to support.tsaadvet.com and enter something in the box

Thanks

Al

Re: Search text box not displaying text

Hey Al, I took a look at this. Your CSS for class "watermarktextbox" is specifying Color: #FFFFFF, so you're getting white on white.

I was able to troubleshoot this quickly with FireBug. I recommend you get that FireFox extension. It makes it super simple for things like this--you can right-click on an object and select "inspect element" to see all the CSS that's being used. Within FireBug I turned off the Color on .watermarktextbox, and the text started appearing.

I just noticed that too when I first reviewed it in firebug I discounted the watermark element 

Thanks for the assist
