	This is the part where I say "If you're using ASP.NET, you can
do this with EasyListBox"...

	Of course Tim's right for the alternative; a different
background or other cue would be your best bet with the old-school
select element.

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.
