Controlling the maximum size of a form control?

I have an table which has the following row with the code:

                        <TR>
                              <TD WIDTH="10">
                              </TD>
                              <TD ALIGN="RIGHT" WIDTH="70">
                                    Function:
                              </TD>
                              <TD WIDTH="100" ALIGN="LEFT">            
                                    <SELECT id=select1 name=select1>
                                          <OPTION>Dallas
                                          <OPTION>Mississippi
                                    </SELECT>
                              </TD>
                              <TD WIDTH="170">
                              </TD>
                              <TD ALIGN="RIGHT" WIDTH="60">
                                    Severity:
                              </TD>
                              <TD WIDTH="100" ALIGN="LEFT">
                                    <SELECT id=select1 name=select1>
                                          <OPTION>Dallas
                                          <OPTION>Mississippi
                                    </SELECT>
                              </TD>
                              <TD WIDTH="10">
                              </TD>
                        </TR>

It works great but when the option value gets longer or shorter
the control gets out of wack position wise relative to the whole page.

Is there a way to set the maximum and minimum size of a control not to exceed
a certain value like the maximum width = 50 for the control?

Thanks

<SELECT id=select1 name=select1>
<OPTION>Dallas
<OPTION>Mississippi
</SELECT>

but for the sake of argument lets say one of the options has this value:

<SELECT id=select1 name=select1>
<OPTION>Dallas
<OPTION>Mississippi
<OPTION>This is a very long string
</SELECT>

the select part gets longer.  I would like to keep it the same width no matter what the value is in the options.

If that is the your question i can blently tell you you can't control the combobox.By default the width is set to its maximum option.
