I've been working on designing a form that is completely under my 
control (that is, contains no variable system colors/fonts - only my own 
styles). There's only one thing left to style - the scrollbars! 
Currently, the scrollbars and pull-down buttons on SELECT lists can't be 
styled by the author - their size and color is completely defined by the 
user agent. (IE5.5 does support a proprietary scrollbar color style, but 
not on SELECT lists.) I don't think these should be in a pseudo-class as 
suggested in section 1.5 of the CSS3 UI draft, because that would make 
styling them for different phases (hover, disabled, etc) impossible. How 
could this be implemented in a cross-platform safe way?
