 > Why the property background-image is not working on a select element?

ok, i'll correct my statement that it _does_ work. first i misunderstood 
your question: i thought of a selected(!) element not _the_ <select> 
element.
nevertheless: on the <option> element, background-image does work (at 
least in mozilla). but according to the spec, it _should_ work in the 
<select> anyway, since 'background-image' Applies to:  all elements :-)

i guess there are those implementational problems again. when brosers 
use their native widgets to implement form-elements, they're sometimes 
very limited. opera e.g. does not even apply the background-color for 
<input> elements and alike.

but anyway: that's not a matter of the spec - it does allow this - but 
bugs in the specific browers. therefore i assume this discussion to be 
pointless on w3-style.

sorry it didn't work out.
