That CSS's height overridden effect may be vary based on different browser and I don't think I.e is support that changes. Probably you need to build custom control that similar to <select> control using some components like <div> or <span> combine with client script such as javascript, then you can adjust the control's height easily. But, this may consume a lot of efforts to do that.

arunpasher,

xcom is correct: "I don't think [IE] is support that changes."

You can't apply a height to a <select> as IE won't render it.  Firefox will, but no browser will show two options for a drop-down...it goes against the HTML specs.

The closer/simpliest solution is using existing <select> control and set its height as preferred. Then, use some client script to make it run as single selection using <select> control.
<select multiple style="height:76px" onchange="javascript:onlyone
 
(this);">
<option>1</option>
<option>2</option>
<option>3</option>
<option>4</option>
<option>5</option>
</select>
 
<script>
function onlyone(obj){
 var intTotal=0;
 
for(i=0;i<obj.length;i++){
   if(intTotal>=1){
     obj[i].selected=false;
   }
 
   if(obj[i].selected){
     intTotal+=1;
   }
 }
}
</script>
