    Browsers might choose to make use of the background-color property (although
    I'm not aware of any that do).

    As there is nothing in the HTML or CSS specification that states how a
    select element should be rendered, then there is nothing which could
    influence the way it is rendered. That's the trouble with replaced elements
    (and a good reason to leave the rendering of form controls alone - you
    can't achieve consistant results, and if you could then the results
    wouldn't be consistant with all the usual UI controls on the users system)

    CSS is a method of formatting content and elements of HTML pages...
    relevance, perhaps?

    Only IE really supports this, and then only IE 5.5 and 6. Really to be
    avoided unless you're totally forced to do it...

    Google for "css format forms" and you'll find plenty of examples.

    Maybe by changing the display properties on your computer.

    Air is what goes through fans, but that doesn't make a discussion of air
    purity relevant to a newsgroup about fans.

    Air isn't a required element of a fan. CSS is to HTML (if done
    properly). Otherwise, this place wouldn't exist, right? HTML only, you
    must NOT MENTION any browser. HTML only, you must NOT MENTION the
    Internet...

    :p
