  1. Hi,
    I am learning html and css.
    I tried to use your css but none of the elements seems to work.

    I even tried on the live demo and there to the same problem. None of the form elements seems to work.

    Please guide me how to make it work.

    Thank You,

    Shivayogi

    • Hello Yogi,
      What is your browser? Pay attention, that if you use an old browser (like IE6/7) – it will not look very good (because of unsupported styles), try it with updated browsers (like IE9, FF, Chrome etc)

  2. I am Using firefox 15.0.1.
    It looks exactly same as in the jpg.
    But how to make select option, radio and checkboxes change.
    Please help me with this.

    • Hello Yogi,
      In this case you can change it programmatically (using jQuery as example), because we should change class value (in case of checkbox)

  3. Sir,

    Never mind my previous Post.
    I realized my mistake.
    Its in the error by using double quotes for the attr, removeAttr and other jquery functions.
    Thanks.

    Yogi

  4. Sir,
    There is one flaw. If we press the tab from the previous form element to come to radio button or check box button. There will be a slight change in position of the checkbox or radio button which is infocus. It happens even in live demo file.
    Please guide me how to get around with this problem.

    • Hello Shivayogi,
      Yes, you are right, there was a problem, and, I’ve fixed it, look, we have to remove ‘overflow: hidden’ from ‘form ul li’ property, that’s all
