Well, browsers don't seem to render select boxes with styled borders. 
Try dropping the following into a page and you will see that it just
doesn't work:

<select style="border: 1px solid red;"></select>

I would suggest using a method other than border colour (for example,
a different background colour) to highlight the field.
