How to Remove the Magnifying Glass from the Sidebar Widget?

I've been searching the forums and reading related topics but I am stuck on that magnifying glass.

Is it possible to use CSS to change the submit button so that it does not use the deafult magnifying glass image but is just a text button instead? I've don't know enough CSS to know if it's possible to override the src of the input field.

I am looking for a solution that does not involve me changing the code.

Default html looks like this:
HTML Code:
<td class="searchbutton">
<input name="submit" value="Search" type="image" src="http://www.no-rep.tv/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/magnifier2-gray.gif" style="display: block; border:none; padding: 0 0 0 5px; margin: 0;">
ps-- making this an editable option in the widget field would be super helpful!

As a work around, I copied the HTML created by the widget and pasted it into my footer, with my own edits to the style/formatting to get rid of the image.

(Side note: I'd love help figuring out how to get rid of the white border around "Search").

It's not the most elegant solution, but it worked for me.

I stuck the generic search widget back into the right-hand side bar if you would like to see it:

The 'Search' widget is not part of the theme, it is part of the WordPress base install. You can add CSS to the Atahualpa 'CSS Inserts' to effect it.

Your solution is fine, you modified it to suit your needs, what more do you need?

Apologies, I assumed the search widget was part of the theme.

I figured out my hack after i posted, but thanks anyway.
