How do I control the CSS class of labels BEFORE a form is validated?

I can control the text style I want after the submit button is clicked (in this case, blue for a correctly completed field, red for in incorrectly completed or empty field), but I can't control them before the sumbit button is clicked (i.e. I only have my machine default style).

My CSS classes for validator are as follows:-

/* classes for validator */
.tfvHighlight {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Geneva, Sans-Serif;
font-size: 10pt;
font-weight: bold;
color: red;
}
.tfvNormal {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Geneva, Sans-Serif;
font-size: 10pt;
font-weight: bold;
color: navy;
}

My code for a typical form field is as follows:-

<td id="t_first_name" align="right" width="25%">First Name:
</td>
<td align="left" width="25%">
<input type="text" size="25" name="first_name">
</td>

The above code is similar to your Demo1, so I'm mystified as to where Demo1 is getting its pre-submit control of labels from.

Sorted this myself. What i didn't have was a style for 'td'. Once I added that, all was well.
