This post is for the folks who want to deploy MOSS without changing the default master page for Blue Band. Please change just one thing…the search button hover state:

Normally it looks like this:


…and when you hover…


Somebody forgot to set the GoImageActiveUrl on the SearchBoxEx control…set it like this:

GoImageActiveUrl="<% $SPUrl:~sitecollection/Style Library/Images/Search_Arrow.jpg %>"

and while you are in there set the one for RTL languages too:

GoImageActiveUrlRTL="<% $SPUrl:~sitecollection/Style Library/Images/Search_Arrow.jpg %>"

Now your hover state is the same as your default state.
