Is it possible to get a box shadow on a select tag dropdown menu?

Is it possible to achieve a box shadow on a simple drop down menu without putting it in a div? I styled my drop down menu like this in my CSS file and I am able to get a blue border but no box shadow. Anyone know why?


select{margin-top: 1px; width: 200px; border: 2px solid #a4cbf9; box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px 1px #888888; color: #444444;}

No, you have to place it into a div... and even with a div you also need for the shadow in order to be cross browser the following.

Example:

-moz-box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px 1px #888888;
-webkit-box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px 1px #888888;

box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px 1px #888888;
