you can do with CSS class like,

<style type="text/css">
.textbox { background-color:#00BFFF; }
<input type="text" class="textbox" id="your_id" title="YourTitle" />

Hope this way will help you,

Can't I do this as the following

<style type="text/css"
input [type="text] {background-color: red}


Address: <input type="text" />
