SELECT & CSS

P: n/a
Does anybody know if it's possible to change the color of the SELECT
scroll bar using CSS, similar to changing the document scroll bar
color using scrollbar-base-color attribute?

Well... did you try? And did it work?

One cannot change the scroll bars of the browsers I regularly use.
You must be mistaken

I am NOT mistaken, but this works only for IE 5.5 +

There are 8 attributes allowing changes to the scroll bars collor - se
MS specs. I'm doing it all the time.

However, my question was about changing the colors of the SELECT
scroll bars, not the document / text area scroll bars which can be
changed easily.

The point Brian was trying to make is that the properties you are using
are just what you say : IE-specific, i.e. useless on his browser, and on
mine.

Since these properties are not standard and uneffective on many
browsers, maybe you should not try to hard to use them. What's more, in
my opinion, scrollbar colors are system properties that should be left
to the user's choice. I would personnally hate to have some windows on
my screen with gray scrollbars, some other windows with pink scrollbars,
etc.

Well, just my opinion...

Opinions are fine :)

Of course I agree in principle.

However - it's still a valid question if somebody wants to know -
curiosity is as valid as opinions.
