Changing backgrounds to pull-down menus?
Hello -

I have a problem; In my database (located at http://www.equinimae.com/cgi-bin/dbman/db.cgi - username/password is DEMO/DEMO) I cannot figure out how to change the background of the pull-down menus like I can the plan TEXT fields. A copy of the html.pl file can be located here -

I really do not know what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated and all are encouraged to reply with any information you may have.

Here's an example for you:


<select name="search">
<option style="background-color:#99CCFF; color:darkblue">All</option>
<option style="background-color:#99CCFF; color:darkblue">Titles</option>
<option style="background-color:#99CCFF; color:darkblue">People</option>
<option style="background-color:#99CCFF; color:darkblue">Characters</option>
<option style="background-color:#99CCFF; color:darkblue">Plots</option>
</select>

You should be aware that background color codes for select drop-down menus only work in IE...not interoperatable between web browsers...

Yes, I know this, but I do not know what file to find that in to edit it. Or where at in that particular file.
