Indenting HTML <select> options

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

In CHADIS, we had a requirement to indent certain <option> elements within a <select> dropdown list. Until recently, only team administrators had to use these pages, so we just made it work in Mozilla Firefox and left the other browsers out in the cold. Now that we have some new features that need this capability, I decided to write-up a quick page to demonstrate each technique we tried and how each browser renders them. You can see the investigation and results below. Enjoy.
