you mean the select tag? The code below works for me:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> 
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
select{
	background-color:yellow;
	font-weight:bold;
	text-decoration:underline;
}
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<select><option>select</option><option>a</option><option>b</option></select>
</form>
</body>
</html>
