Discussion on: Overview of the NES.css Framework

The one thing I've noticed where it doesn't follow the same pixel style is when clicking on the drop-down menu.

That's because it cannot do that. The web standards have no way to customise the <select>.

This is for a good reason: mobile devices implement it as a popout list with large touch-friendly areas instead of a drop-down. That's also why it's called simply <select> and not <dropdown>.

While it's possible to simply not use the standard HTML <select> and build a custom component, it would mean that you lose the accessibility benefits and you have to write JavaScript to make it work.

Also, NES FTW! 😀
