can you customise the width and colour scheme of the adsense panels? AFAIK
its an inserted piece of javascript.

You can change the width/height, but you aren't supposed to.

google_ad_width = 180;
google_ad_height = 150;

you can change the colour scheme either by editing these-

google_color_border = "224466";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "335588";
google_color_url = "335588";
google_color_text = "000000";

Or by logging in and pointing clicking a lot.

I created my own search box as the current ones didn't work- /

Also they have a image link to Google home page. Now I don't mind
sending my visitors to Google as they pay me, but a link to their home
page from 10s of thousands of pages, I don't think so. what has Google
ever done for me :-))

I then asked if it was OK and got a canned response that you aren't
supposed to edit it.

That search box just doesn't get used by visitors, I've made 2 cents
from it and that was me testing it!

The annoyingly luddite AdSense T&C's state:

.. You agree to comply with the specifications provided by Google to
enable proper delivery, display, tracking, and reporting of Ads,
Search Results, and Google Brand Features (as defined in Section 12
below) in connection with Your Site(s), including without limitation
by not modifying the JavaScript or other programming provided to You
by Google in any way, unless expressly authorized in writing by
Google (including by electronic mail).

But... you *can* make minor modification through their web interface.
