I have two fields in my db size and colors I store my data like that:

size colors
8 red,blue
10 red
12 white

I have two dropdown lists the first for size and the second for size I made a select query and get the sizes I want but I want when I select a specific size the second list display the colors , also I know how to populate a comma seprated field but what should I do so the seconde list change its values

(without ajax please)

if you want this done client side

server side will need to construct some arrays to populate the second select list

for example populate select script see
