Setting Font within <select> tag

I would like to set the font within a <select> tag so that all the <option> strings have a particular font. Can that be done? How?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This would do just that.
Need another font name just change serif to something else.

<SELECT id=select1 name=select1
style="FONT-FAMILY: serif; HEIGHT: 22px; WIDTH: 161px"> <OPTION selected
  value="">dfgsdfgsdfg</OPTION><OPTION value="">sdfgsdfgsdfg</OPTION><OPTION
  value="">dsfgsdfgsdfg</OPTION><OPTION value="">dfgsdfgsdfgsd</OPTION><OPTION
