  1. When I used the list supplied, the text wouldn’t wrap properly, and spread across the full width of the page.
    I found this list – http://snipplr.com/view/50005/country-dropdown-list-with-country-name-as-value/
    which I pasted instead and, voilá, the text wraps perfectly!
    The format is as follows-Afghanistan
    with each country country wrapped as Country
    Hope it helps somebody.

    • Hi Peter, thank you for your comment. Thank you for your list it is a great list. In regards to your text not wrapping properly would have being because of your CSS code probably clashing with your theme. However you resolved that issue with the great link you provided.

      Regards
