Is there a way to change the background color of the validation message for the inputs in Chrome (under win)?

For example, can I change this to white?

Edit: This is a shot from internal validation in Chrome under windows. No JavaScript involved here. Here is the code:

    <input type="date" />
    <input type="submit" />

enter image description here

Does that happen for all validation online? As surfasb said, this is something the HTML/CSS/JavaScript of a website controls. – slhck Sep 21 '11 at 22:02

I believe this is controlled by the webpage itself. Web controls aren't Win32 controls.
