Internet Explorer cut off select tag values.

Hi everyone

I've done some extensive research on the internet about internet explorer that cuts off the select tags values when it is set to a specific width, the only work around for this is hacking it with JavaScript, which in my case works sometimes and sometimes when I load the page I get a Unspecified error in the JavaScript that I got from the internet and I need to refresh the page to get it working.
I'm currently using struts 2.0.14.
The select tag works fine in Firefox as always.
Do you maybe know of another way to correct this problem?

You'd be better off asking on an HTML forum; if the HTML being generated by the Struts tag is correct then there's nothing Struts can do to fix IE. If the HTML being generated is incorrect then you should file a JIRA issue against the bug.
I agree. Here's the link:
