Someone at the forum gave a link to http://www.webfx.eae.net/dhtml/combobox/combobox.htm .

My questions are: Can that combobox be used just like a regular selectlist in a form? And if so what is the name of the object, can it be called with document.formname.etc just like a regular selectlist? Hope you get what I mean...

You should post this at the Webfx webboard (http://webfx.eae.net/webboard/).

True. First of all, this is way larger issue than plain HTML & CSS. And second: there exists a separate board for WebFX.
