[thelist] Tip Time

	not been able to figure out how to change the colours of the borders
either - the only way ive been able to change the look and feel of drop
downs are by making them in dhtml - but i find it more hassle than its
worth - changing the font colour and background colour gives a nice effect -
just waiting for CSS to let you have full control over scrollbar colours,
the highlight colour etc..



an old tip - but as we're on the subject

<tip type="dropdown menu">
To colour each individual item in a dropdown menu try this:

<option style="background-color: rgb(252,205,208);">heres one</option>
<option style="background-color: rgb(252,205,208);">heres another
<option style="background-color: rgb(252,205,208);">and another one</option>

to have the same colour through out the dropdown menu try:

<select style="background-color: rgb(153,153,102);">

or in the CSS try:

	font-family: verdana;
	font-size: 10px;
	color: 000000;
	border-style: FFFFFF;
	border: 1px #FFFFFF solid;
	border-color: FFFFFF;
	background-color: FFFFFF;
	height: 20px;

Thanks for the tip, Paul.  Any idea on how to do this using <select>? I've
never been able to figure out how to change the border colors of the box.
