The input box does not produce xhtml strict markup. Attached is a patch
which removes the tables, stops mediawiki inserting <p></p> into the form
and breaking validation and a conversion of the bgcolor="" to style="" and
allowing styles to be passed into the extension.
I read on another bug that my style change could lead to a cross site
Anyway.. this patch works for me. Feel free to improve any potential

Patch for inputbox
MediaWiki does not use XHTML Strict, but Transitional.
Unquoted attributes aren't valid there, either (indeed, IIRC they aren't even valid in HTML 4
except for numbers). The rest of the patch is still INVALID, though.
By the way, the issue with allowing arbitrary style on elements is that IE will accept
to frown on in MediaWiki.
Should be valid XHTML Transitional as of r19729.
