Jono, I suggested this in my first email.

You can apply a background to an input field. See this page for details - 

Make your error message into a gif and use that.

The concern that both I and Andy raised is using presentation CSS to do 
functional work. It's akin to using tables for complex layouts. Yes it is 
doable, but it's not necessarily a Good Thing.
