Columns in a form select element

P: n/a
Hi all,

Can this be done. I am wanting to have columns in my forms select element. I
have data of varied length from three fields. Can this be done, or should I
try and stuff spaces into the select element to asume columns

Thought about a fixed-pitch font like Courier?

Oh, well, then no. I think you wanted to know if there was a way of doing
"FIELD1\tFIELD2" - there isn't (www.w3.org is your friend). Space-padding is
your friend also.

And this isn't PHP after that.

If the data will fit in columns, you could find the length of the
longest element and use that to calculate the spaces to add.
