How to move the arrow in a select element to the left?


I`m building a website that will be presented in rtl(right to left) language.

I need to have a select box with the arrow of the drop down list on the left instead of the default where it`s on the right.

How can I do it?

I want to have the select html element look like this:

V select_name

Instead of the normal markup:

select_name V

Where V denotes the arrow next to the select element.

Is this what you want?

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. <form>
  3.   <select dir="rtl">
  4.       <option value="one">one</option>
  5.       <option value="two">two</option>
  6.       <option value="three">three</option>
  7.   </select>
  8.   </form>
