I'm not sure I'm following you.
There may be some confusion in terms.
FL_NORMAL_INPUT is an object type and FL_FLAT_BOX is an attribute of
the object. They aren't interchangable. There is also a box object,
which is a passive object -- it is not used to interact with the user
but is generally used for decoration.
FL_NORMAL_INPUT should allow text entry -- that's sort of the point.
If the input text isn't displayed when typed, it may be a problem with
the size of the input area. XForms has a rather draconian attitude
toward clipping input text -- if it doesn't fit vertically within the
box, it gets *completely* elided.
