Hi Ryan,

   What's your platform?

   If shrinking the select box with CSS is acceptable, you can add a tooltip for the selected text (unfortunately you can't do much at all with the unselected items):

Been searching for a solution for this one for some
time. and hoping someone on the list can help:

I have a list box that contains book/video titles. A
few of the titles are very long (and cannot be
abbreviated) forcing the list box to be very wide ...
and breaking my css 3-column layout.

Short of editing the titles, does anyone have a
solution for shrinking the width of the list box? I
have this problem on both single and multi select
