How do you expand the controls width for a parameter on a SSRS report?

I have a drop down list box that is not wide enough for the values. Like to expand it and make it wider.

I haven't found any predictable way to control the formatting of ReportViewer parameters. It seems to depend on the browser being used and to some degree the phase of the moon. There are said to be major improvements in the way the ReportViewer control works in Visual Studio 2010, which launches in a couple of weeks, and I am hoping for the situation to improve. I will evaluate it when I receive the RTM product.
There are control names and IDs in the HTML output from the viewer that might possibly be used to apply CSS formatting. That is all I can suggest for now, apart from what I did, which was to try to keep the drop-down values short enough to fit.

OK, I will look at VS Studio 2010. Maybe it can do this.
