dropdownlist and table column width in Mozilla?

P: n/a
I found that the width attribute in Mozilla is different in IE. In
Mozilla, if the content in dropdownlist's list or table <td> cell is
wider than the width attribute, Mozilla just enlarge the width. Anyway
to make Mozilla behave the same as IE?

You don't have a URL to demonstrate what you really mean?

For <td>, that's the defined behavior unless table layout is set to fixed
(which is a CSS issue). Don't you think IE does the same?

For <select>, there is no width attribute in HTML specifications, so
all bets are off. Are you telling us that Mozilla has copied the
Netscape 4 oddity of recognizing such an attribute?

Ask Microsoft to fix IE? Allow three years for delivery, and prepare to
buy a new computer, since the new IE will be shipped along with a new
"operating system", which will require new hardware.
