Anyone done custom template for FORM block?

Permalink
I'm designing a site and want to have a 'newsletter sign-up' with the form block but I need to style the text input area and button. I cannot figure out how to do this?
Any thoughts?
Typically I would use a custom template but the table layout of the form block is killing me. I can't get the code tow work out if I hard code it into the file. I tried using a block from the global scrapbook but when I submit it the form it takes me to the global scrapbook page to show the thank you message.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
see the form herewww.www.apocalypse-charting.com...

Better use the extended form block, it's easier to style, than dealing with the table layout.

Hey core crew, it's time for tabless output ;)

yea the core form block doesn't really follow the MVC framework,

there was a community form block somewhere

The community form block doesn't seem to be compatible with 5.4.X.
After installing I got this error on the add functionality page:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FormBlockStatistics in C:\wamp\www\rynomedia\concrete\blocks\form\controller.php on line 405

now, how do I uninstall if the functionality page won't render?

Yes, I have. Have a look at my Contact Form example (http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/block_requests/contact-form-email#60262/) where I wrote everything myself from scratch and incl. my own form style, this should give you an idea.
