Since the OS handles the rendering of dropdown boxes in IE, I've always had a terrible time getting them to style. I am eager to see if one of the other experts has a solution. My gut feeling is that this is something that you won't be able to overcome - at least across different versions of IE on different Windows OS versions.

IE6 does not support styling of dropdown elements. And I think the same is true for IE7.

I am using IE8 which allows this.

The Form elements are not Native Web Elements, they are influenced greatly by the Browser and OS,

In the document above, is a good solution, but as mentioned it is not tested on Linux or Mac.

The Form elements are not Native Web Elements, they are influenced greatly by the Browser and OS, you will not be able to style them as you need.

My Advice is to replace the combo box with a small dhtml menu to select the language, you can make it look better than the combo box and it will be standard in all browsers and OS.'

If you need help with the code of the dhtml menu, please do mention it.
