I'm using this to change the border on a bunch of textboxes, however
when applied to a dropdownlist the borders don't get set. Also, is it
possible to change the color of the dropdown button on the the


    font-family:Comic Sans MS;

   According to the validator, you are using non-existent attributes:

Tsk, tsk.  "Scrollbar-shadow-color" indeed!  That's ie crap, not valid css.  
If you _really_ want to use that baloney at least put it in an ie comment.

The IE-specific settings that you use aren't supported even by IE for the
visual rendering of <select> elements. You might try to circumvent this by
using a set of radio buttons instead, wrapping them inside a fieldlist or
div element and setting various properties for it, so that you get something
that resembles a dropdownlist.

It's not worth doing, though. First, by messing around with scrollbar
settings, you mess up the browser's interface. Second, you are most probably
(ab)using <select> as a poor surrogate for a list of links.
