Ok, One of my text entries in the drop down list is long. The box then stretches too far to accommodate the text, even running off the edge of the screen! How do you make it so that the box is locked in a specific width and the text adjusts itself to form 2 lines? Shortening the title of my text is not an option for me, but breaking it into two lines is ok. Please, can you help?

There is no way to wrap it to use 2 lines. However, you can force a certain width to the select box. Add a style="width:200px;" property to the <select> tag like <select name="menu" style="width:200px;"> (exact code will vary depending on which type of menu you are using)

The drop down menu appears to be on the top left hand corner of the window. How do I change it's position?

You can change the position by placing the menu code inside a container with alignment set:

<div style="text-align:right;"> menu code </div>
