I am just looking for a well documented example.  So if anyone knows a place I can dig up an great example of a pull down menu including how the input is processed and acted upon that would be great.  I was going to do it in Java but am thinking it would be easier in CGI.  Thanx for any help.

CGI is not really appropriate. In CGI you can only rebuild the whole page and each action requires a request back to the server.

The only pull-down menus type of operation I have seen uses some of the features of the new browsers which I am not familar with and I don't think it is currently possible to do it with both Netscape *and* MSIE in a standard way.

  I may provide you with sample script that will
provide you with PullDown menus functionality and will
work with both Netscape 3.* and above and MSIE 3 and above,
but it'l take some time to prepare that script clean and
clear. In such case I want at least 100 points. Or I may
provide you with just idea for your 25 and here it comes:

 Use JavaScript object Select and onchange() event.
(It works).

 PS. Of course it's not so cool than rewriting whole client
to Java, but do you realy need such rewriting?

You are welcome. Sometimes it's hard to understand the level
of person who is asking question and how long will it take
to explain detailes. (BTW - just note that for clean solution
it may be not bad idea to add 'go' button for old or
buggie browsers. Netscape 2.* has a bug in onchange()
event.)
