Just curious, but does anybody know how this skinning can be done for the "Sort by" and "View" input select menus? They are accessible with keyboard shortcuts, and seem to work in IE7 and up.
You can View source on that sort of thing to find out, or use an inspector like Firebug.
They are using yui3, have a look through the docs for it, http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/examples/button/button-menu-select.html may help
It's pretty brilliant. They're using a YUI library thingie.
What they did:
After it, they have a normal select element. Unfortunate that they chose a span instead of a label for the label text, bah. That'll prolly hit JAWS users and they may not hear that span. But anyway.
