Adding Form input to a HREF'd query string?

Hi guys......
I have a query string wrapped inside a href.......
<A HREF=CGIDOC?PARAM=Hello%2World>Click Me</A>

I have a popup on the same page.......
<SELECT NAME=POP1>
<OPTION>Fred
<OPTION>Barney
<OPTION>Wilma
</SELECT>

Without a submit button, how can I pass on the contents of the selection of the popup along with the query string?

regards
Ricky

In Javascript you can determnine that the value in the menu has changed using onChange.  Then this can update th value of the link so that when the user touches the link it has been changed.

Probably a better choice would be to make the href actually do a call to a JS function and have the JS function do the reference.

PS = note I use the onClick to actually cause the form to be submitted.  Also, I submitted to our env.cgi so that we could all check what is really happening.
