    Customising appearance of selectlists & textareas

    I would like to know if there is a way to customise the appearances of selectlists & textareas with css (borders, heights, arrowcolor etc). It seems like in IE5+ i can customise everything except these objects! Is it really so!?

    yes, nearly everything is customizable, including those. can we see the CSS you're using? maybe there's a typo or something somewhere.

    Thanks for your reply!

    For example, I use this class for a selectlist, which remains with the "default xp-border" (blue) anyway:

    select.admin_xl {border: 1px solid;border-color: #999999;font-size: 12px; color: #000000 ; width: 280px}

    select menu scrollbar and border cannot be configured with CSS
    they will be the indapendant users system colors.

    everything else you can change
