Web Developers: Displaying a small drop down box?

Hey kids, I am creating a web application and one of teh steps requires me to generate a long list of items with a select box in each row. the standard HTML select box is big and bulky and screws up the spacing of the table. Anyone know how to create a narrower less bulky drop down box within a series of forms?

Looking at the drop downs in the reply window here are close to what I want. Help is appreciated.

Eh, nevermind. Turns out the formatting issues wasn’t with the dropdown list size, but instead the annoying wasted space created by a form tag.

Crap, new issue to fix.
