In order to beautify the elements it needs to add some HTML wrappers that we can style properly around (or sometimes instead of) the elements. Actually we remove the real select elements and replace it with unordered list, as we <select> is not to be styled, while we do not have problems to style <ul>. As after the decoration this is not a real HTML (select) tag it has some issues with keyboard support and we have done everything possible with regard to the many differences between the browsers. Currently navigation through the keyboard is supported in IE and you can use the up and down arrows to navigate through the options and enter or Alt+down to expand the dropdown. It is also not possible to change its style to look selected (i.e. the usual blue background) at this point. If a viable cross-browser solution is found we will incorporate it in the code. Please also note that the focused style varies between browsers - e.g. IE creates a dotted line, while FF adds a box that resembles a shadow around the buttons. All that being said - if keyboard support is extremely important for your site the best suggestion is to revert to a page without the FromDecorator, or to Skip just the Drop down decoration using ControlsToSkip property.
