In the code below, only "Current/History" text is correctly formatted as class "selectmenutext".
What is within the php code (<option>) text is not. How can I format the text in <option>?
As you can see, I tried both using class in <td> and <span>.
Thanks

<td  valign="center" width="120" bgcolor="#339999"  class=selectmenutext>
<span class=selectmenutext>
Current/History: <select onchange="window.location='index.php?coh='+this.value">
<?php
global $currORhist;
$list = array("Current","Historical");
for ($i = 0; $i <= 1; $i++) {
echo "<option value=\"$list[$i]\"";
if ($currORhist == $list[$i]) print " SELECTED";
echo ">" . $list[$i];
echo "</option>";
}
?>
</select>
</span>
