Testing using 10/6 kit

add a drop-down
via style editor enlarge the font and set the font color
> firefox shows color, but doesn't enlarge drop-down size and so font is clipped
> explorer shows font size ok, but doesn't show color

These appear to be known limitations in both browsers (Google turns up several
articles on the topic).

The solution, in both cases, is to have style settings for font reduplicated on
each individual HTML option element within the HTML select element. The renderer
can be modified to do this, but it is tricky: you need to carefully parse the
style setting on the component, to filter out positioning and size settings.

There is no convenient workaround for this.

The J2EE 1.4 Sun Web UI Component library based on JSF 1.1 is now under maintenance mode. Only P1/P2 bugs reported on 
these components will be addressed. All current development efforts are being focused on Java EE 5 Project Woodstock 
component library based on JSF 1.2.
