Is this possible?

Can HTML make an drop down box (SELECT) like this: unopened box is a specific width, however when "dropped down" the options extend beyond the width of the box to the longest string? Is it possilbe to do this? Thank you!

Gecko browsers (Mozilla/Firefox/Netscape/etc) do this automagically. I don't think this is possible in other browsers (not sure about Safari though)
