Bizarre yellow text input field...

P: n/a
Hi, try the following HTML - it displays the text and a text box with
a white background as expected.

Now, change "Customer ame" to "Customer Name" or even "CustomerName",
and the text entry box background goes yellow and has a 3-d border.

What is going on ?

This is with IE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030422-1633 plus some patches (up
to Q837009).

Google toolbar does this. Opera can do this with the Wand on as well.

But is it also with the Google toolbar installed?

Yellow background and default 3d borders (as opposed to WinXP flat
borders) are a sign that the Google toolbar can autofill that field.
