Currently, no browser listens to the text-align on an <option> (or a <select>,
for that matter). Although bug 10820 used to demand that this change, I have
modified it to no longer do so.

On the other hand, I still very much want the direction (e.g. as set by the dir
attribute) on an <option> to be obeyed, both before and after it has been
selected. Currently this is only the case in Firefox.
