I'm having a really tough time getting select lists to work properly in Netscape. We have a form that allows a user to fill out an online resume and a file input field for them to upload a copy of their resume also. Since we've got the file upload field, we have to use enctype="multipart/form-data" in the form tag. We also have a select list of their country. When they select a country, it populates the states/provinces from that country and when they select a state, it populates the cities from that state.

When we put the enctype="multipart/form-data" part of the form tag in, it screws up Netscape 4. We cannot select a country from the list and have it work properly. It's currently submitting the form back to the same page to read in the states based off of whatever the country was that they selected.... but it's defaulting to United States no matter what they select. If I take out the enctype="multipart/form-data" part, it works fine.

Now, in Netscape 7.1, we're having the same problem but it's not because of the enctype="multipart/form-data" portion of code. It doesn't matter if I have that in there or not, the select boxes don't seem to hold their code.

Can anyone suggest a way to make this work? Thanks.
