Hide SharePoint WebPart header menu dropdown arrow and selection checkbox

Working on a dashboard page for users with limited possibilities, I had to disable the close and minimize webpart functionality. Instead of just hiding the functions, I chose to have a minimalistic view and hide SharePoint WebPart header menu dropdown arrow.

The webpart header consist of following parts:

tr class =ms-WPHeader (which is the header)
td class = ms-wpTdSpace (white space)
td class = ms-WPHeaderTd (the actual title)
td class = ms-WPHeaderTdMenu (which has the dropdown arrow and menu)
td class = ms-WPHeaderTdSelection (which has the selection checkbox)
td class = ms-wpTdSpace (white space)

So if you want to hide the arrow, you need:

<style type="text/css">
     .ms-WPHeaderTdMenu {display:none}

If you want to hide the selection box, you need:

<style type="text/css">
     .ms-WPHeaderTdSelection {display:none}
