The resulting HTML for an ASP.NET listbox web control is a standard <select> tag. Unfortunately, this HTML element doesn't do horizontal scrolling. It just draws itself wide enough to show all of the widest option. If you assign an explicit pixel width to the control, it will just cut off the option text that is too wide.
