I'll just chime in and say that I think unthemed form elements is one of 
the things that presently makes Drupal look very, very, very 
unprofessional compared to the many cleverly themed CMS packages out there.

If people can't grasp that the square puffy thing with the word 'SUBMIT' 
on it is the submit button, let's not blame ourselves. drumm's point 
about contrast is a good one, but in general theming of the form 
elements is a good thing. Default form widgets look like *ass*. They're 
a festering boil on any well-designed theme, and they switch and shift 
from platform to platform as well.

And for that matter, I like the two-pixel border on form elements. I 
LIKE it. Hah!
