having problems with IE

shane3341436
I'm using select field for listing a number of options. The width of the options are very wide compared to the select field width. The mozilla renders all the options very fine as it shows the full width of the options. But IE, it is always inviting troubles. IE shows the options of the select field whose width is equal to the select field width. So, I can't see the whole length options in IE. Is there any solution to this problem?
Here is the example of the code
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <tr><td >
  2. <select style="width:100px" name="menu">
  3. <option value="">Select Menu</option>
  4. <option value="1">Hello a very Good morning to everybody</option>
  5. </select>
  6. </td></tr>

Don't specify a width and it's gonna work.

[HTML]<select name="menu" >
<option value="">Select Menu</option>
<option value="1">Hello a very Good morning to everybody</option>
</select>[/HTML]

Thank you for your response.
But that is not what exactly I want. If I did not specify the width, the width of the select field becomes equal to the widest option in the list. When using 4 similar kinds of select fields in same row, it does not look good. I need to show the select field in IE exactly same as that is rendered by mozilla. Isn't it possible?
