Where To Change Field Width

I want to increase the width of some of the fields that are being displayed in the default Contact Us form. Say, I want to increase the Contact Name to 250px. Where would I specify that, i.e., to which file and against which parameter?

Thanks in advance.

In the contact_styled.php page, the CSS that controls the text fields looks like this:
<style type="text/css">
Label {text-transform:uppercase;background:#f9f1e1;padding:3px;}
.inputValue {width:85%;}
.inputText {width:85%; height:180px;}
.inputButton {}
.textfieldServerError {
display:block;
margin:0px;
color:#CC3333;
border: 1px solid #CC3333;
}
</style>

You would have to change the width on the inputValue to get the width of the text fields to change. This will change the width on all the text fields. If you want to set the width of a specific text field, you would set the width on that text field specifically, either by hard coding it into the field or setting up a CSS class for it.

Thanks, Jimmy. Using your comments as a start, I was able to determine another way of changing the field widths as well. (I also increased my HTML knowledge in the process!) I'm passing the information on in case others reading this thread might find it useful to their situation.

For the Contact Name and Email fields, I added a 'size' parameter to the <input> tag to change the width of those fields, and for the Comments field, I added a 'cols' parameter to the <textarea> tag to change the width of that field.
