I have a drop down select menu that has about 700px worth of text in each option and i need the select box to be 300px wide. So i changed the width in the CSS to fit my layout however in IE the actual portion that drops down stays 300px wide which does not allow the user to view the entire option.

Is there a way to control the width of the drop down section?

<select name="ctl00$pageContent$ddlVariationGroup103" onchange="javascript:setTimeout('__doPostBack(\'ctl00$pageContent$ddlVariationGroup103\',\'\')', 0)" id="ctl00_pageContent_ddlVariationGroup103" class="select">
							<option value="Select Filter Parts">
								Select Filter Parts
							</option><option value="2233" selected="selected">
								2 - Pressure Gauge, 1/4&quot; 81060BU
							</option><option value="2234">
								8 - Manual High Flow Air Relief Valve Assembly 98209804
