If you take a look at the following screenshot, ...

.. I need to create that same rounded corner effect for those select dropdown boxes in the lefthand column.  How would I accomplish that?  

I need a solution that's as cross-browser as possible.  

Thanks in advance.

Check out Niceforms:

Then replace the images in the /img folder with your own if you are not happy with the default style.

That looks pretty slick - thanks!

I did a quick test, and it doesn't appear to work in IE6.  Is it fair to say that the rounded corner effect for select dropdown boxes just isn't possible to achieve in IE6?

That's right - no IE6 unfortunately. It does degrade fairly gracefully though in IE6.

"Compatibility

The script is fully compatible and has been tested with most major browsers, with the exception of IE6."
