I am using NCSA Mosaic version 2.4 under DEC Ultrix.

I am attempting to create a selection box which has formated columns.
For example, 
<SELECT NAME="row_select" SIZE=5><P>
<OPTION> Col1        Col2          Col3
<OPTION> Column1a    Column2a      Column3a
               .
               .
               .
</SELECT>

When this is passed into the select, my client strips out all but
one of the the white space, leaving the scroll unformated.
I have tried combinations of the following, but none have worked:
<PRE> <OPTION> Col1        Col2          Col3 </PRE>
<OPTION><PRE> Col1        Col2          Col3 </PRE>
I have also put the PRE before/after the <SELECT>.


Am I missing something? Is the use of pre formated text
in a list box not supported?


Thanks for any help
