This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'd like to create a select with a width of something smaller than the text I want viewed on each row.
Mozilla seems to support something like this, using titles and alt text for items in a select component. In the (narrow) select component, items are dislayed using their (short) title text. When the mouse cursor hovers over an item, the (longer) alt text is shown.
IE doesn't seem to support this.
Any ideas? (Did I describe what I'm trying to do well enough.)
Mozilla based browsers only support that feature if I remember correctly. Selects are one of the most pain in the butt elements on the page since they do not support things that they should especially with overflowing of text.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
