This is simply HTML. Example:-


<select id="selList" >
<option value = "">Choose a colour</option>
<option value = "Red">Red</option>
<option value = "Blue">Blue</option>
<option value = "Green">Green</option>
<option value = "Yellow">Yellow</option>
</select>

I think he is asking for a multi-level menu.

You know:

Products People Tools
Hardware Ann Hammer
Software Bob Screwdriver
Carl Wrench

Except that the drop downs don't show until the main menu item is selected.

In that case, see the many possibilities at

Most of the links on that page are broken.

Not terribly useful if the code isn't there.

:( I have advised WA.

Meanwhile, this is OK:-

and in particular:-

which appears to be what is wanted here.

Another good example is at:-

Well, I still think he means multi-level menus, nothing really to do with <select>s, but if your interpretation is right, one of those should surely do the job.
