Description Tom Brown 2007-02-21 11:07:02 PST
Certain settings of the "-webkit-user-select" property cause "input" and "select" elements to behave inconsistently, specifically when a local setting is overriding a more strict global setting. The "text" and "none" values override correctly and consistently, but the "ignore" and "auto" behave differently.

I believe the correct behavior would be consistency. If content within the input textbox can be selected, items within the select box should be selectable as well. A local setting of "auto" should allow each element to be selected based on it's element type, rather than on any parent setting.

As far as I can tell by selecting all on the demo, the behavior is consistent now.
