Want scrollbar to appear after 5 items are displayed

Hello,

How can you specify the maximum number of items to be displayed in a combo box before a scrollbar appears?. IE has a default of 8 items but Netscape 4.x displays around 20 items before the scrollbar appears. I would like the scrollbar to appear when more than 5 items are displayed. I am using CSS to style my form elements.

Any ideas??

Thanks,
baboo

And in HTML there is no such thing as a combobox; just a select.
