    Question Combo Boxes

    I wondered if anyone knew why it is that, on this site and many others, javascript-activated drop-down lists are called "combo boxes"? Coming from a windows background, I consider a combo box to be one which also allows entry by typing, not just selection from a list (i.e. a "combo"nation :-).

    Secondly, I was wondering if anyone has come across anything which actually _does_ do the combo box without resorting to ActiveX components...

    Thanks!
