Styling Google Docs Forms

Google Docs doesn't offer an option to customize forms and you can only choose from 70 predefined themes. Gill Smith managed to find a list of parameters that let you style any Google Docs form by adjusting its address.

For example, you can remove the title of a form by adding "&ttl=0" to the URL, you can change the font by adding "&f=FONT_NAME", the text color by appending "&tc=HEX_VALUE" and the background color using "&bc=HEX_VALUE".

Note that this works only for the embedded forms, which have a special URL. Here's the address of the customized form displayed below:

http://spreadsheets.google.com/embeddedform?key=rwP1POieyAS3nnI7OqD7sHQ&ttl=0&f=Verdana&tc=0022ff&bc=f9fff9



Another option is to copy the HTML code generated by Google and to style it using CSS.
