Try putting it in a <td> of a table

<td align = "right"><html:select>....</html:select></td>

You have a td after that one too, so how would this be right aligned?

hi,

i'm a bit surprised that my code doesn't work. I tested it with success.

You can also try to embed css styles in your page like this :
select {
text-align:right;
}

Really don't know why it doesn't work !!
I'm using JDeveloper, I have a view object with set of attributes, in the data control palette I've selected the *Dim* attribute -as you can see in the *property* attribute in html:select- and specify it to be * List of Values* from the combobox and drag/drop it inside the jsp page???

 <html:select size="11" property="Dim" style="text-align:right;;width:250px;">
          <html:optionsCollection style="text-align:right;" label="prompt" value="index" property="Dim.displayData"/>
        </html:select>
