how can I change drop down list arrow colour?

  powertool 21:04 16 Sep 2004

When I tried to re-create the drop down box from the table the BBC site here:

I found that the drop down arrow on my version is sort of blue; which clashes with the brown!

I guess that the solution lies in the style sheet. Does anyone know how I can read the style sheet from the BBC site, or how I can change the colour of the arrow?

Thanks for your help.

this is a bit embarrassing - but I swear that it wasn't blue yesterday! I had the two browser windows open side by side and the BBC one was black.

I don't use software, I write all my pages up in HTML myself. That's why, when I see a page I like I tend to want to look at the source to see how they did it. I quite liked the colour scheme on the BBC page and wanted to see what palette they used.

Meanwhile - does anyone know if it is possible to change the colour of the drop down arrow?!

the drop down arrow is monochrome when viewed on AOL's integrated browser, but blue when viewed on MSIE. It doesn't get me much further forward, but at least I didn't imagine it!
