1st attempt at vBulletin skin, border problems

Does anyone know how I alter the borders as shown in the image attached.
I've tried chasing it down with firebug but it says the border is from and iframe that's calling a font color for the border, that can't be right surely!
The skin can be seen here at present (yes, it's a 3.8.0 B1)

It's not finished yet, it is nearly ready, a few bits to iron out but, this is one of my own phpBB3 templates I'm porting over to vBulletin. It'll be released here FREE when it's done
http://matritellurven.org/vb38test/index.php
Hope someone can tell me how to handle those border colors, they're driving me bonkers.

(Yes, I'm Reverend.Kirk.Fitzgerald!)

Nobody knows?
This is ready to be released for testing apart from this border problem.

I don't see anything like that on the page you linked to, so I really can't help.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Hi Lynne, yeah sorry, I should have been clearer obviously, it's the input area for posting.
There's a really ugly pink border there, I can live with the blue one, the pink one simply has to go, you can see it in the demo image I have posted. Sadly our server is down just now for emergency maintenance apparently. If you need me to do so, when our server is back up and runnign I can create a test account there and PM you the login details so you can see it for yourself!

Can you please PM me with a test account? Your site is up right now, but when I clicked on New Thread (I would guess that is the page?), I was told I had to log in.

Hmmm, it doesn't look like that for me at all. What browser are you using?

Watch your mouth!!!

No, I'm using ff3 on a mac. It looks slightly different in Safari - the border below Message: is a light gray. But, the other borders are black.

Hmmm, any ideas on how I can force all browsers to use the same border colour or is it going to have to stay as a browser dependant colour?

Cross-browser color matching in css is not something I have ever tried to figure out. The only thing I can really think of to do is to try to add some style to the table perhaps? Maybe you can add style="color:black' or similar to the table or row or column and see if that changes things.

Hiya Lynne, sorry mate, been so busy I have only just had the chance to catch up here, that issue remains unresolved alas.
I have released this here as of today, if someone discovers a solution to it then it can be added to the skin, the skin is just fine without it but it is a little niggling is all.
