Can't change font size of dropdown choices!

 12:56 pm on Apr 26, 2004 (gmt 0)


I am using Pocket PC and I am trying to use dropdowns(select..options) on a xsl/html page. The default font size for the selections that I put inside the <option> are too big and I wanted to reduce them but can't seem to be able to do it. I've tried the <small> tag, putting a SIZE attribute on the <td> that is around the select, and tried stylesheets, but the size doesn't change. Is there anyway to change the size? Thanks.

for the best scalability, define your fonts in 'ems' instead of points or pixels. then the <small></small> will scale accordingly.

I also found, when I started developing for pocketpc, that I had to bag tables and go with pure css. be advised, tho, that css is not yet widely recognized. only pocket IE 2003 supports css. earlier versions do not.

hope this helps. developing for ppc has been a wild ride for me so far. a lot of it is a crap shoot. I have yet to get my streaming media slideshow to work on the ppc.

I'm a loon! I'm new to xhtml+css myself so bear with me...

forgot to mention that you must import a stylesheet using:
@media handheld

I'm on my ppc right now, so I'm tapping my brains out just to get this short message out!

if you'd like the url to my site, sticky me. you can examine the source code. I'll also be at my computer so I can return a better response in more detail.
