Thanks Paul, Your suggestion won't quite achieve what I was trying to do. I wanted to highlight the "Team: Team Name" bit only, not the rest of the line. I wanted to make the team name stand out. As you say it may not be possible. Thanks again.

Try applying the class to the option element instead: <option value="29,AAA,Test" class="alertyellow">Team: AAA, Grade :Test</option> :) Paul -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
