What exactly is a nice-looking select box? What do you need to change?
What do you hope to achieve by changing them?

Have you tried CSS?

Here is a very simple example, but you can
do all kinds of things with it.

<style type="text/css">

select{
font-size: 14pt;
background: yellow;
color: black;
}

</style>

<select id="drpTest">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
</select>

If for a screen stylesheet (common), never ever use "pt" for font size.
This is a unit dependent on the font resolution and thus results in
different font sizes on different systems by default. Use "px" or "em",
while "px" has the disadvantage of being not supported by the font scaling
feature of the IE browser component due to a bug (other UAs have no problem
with it). The 100% font resolution on MS Windows is 96ppi, so if you are
developing there with that resolution, multiply the "pt" value with 1.33
(and round it) to get the respective "px" value (e.g. 14pt =~ 19px).
