You can also use:
<option value=\"\">&nbsp;</option>

sorry dj:

it is not what I want, as I just want
to test if selection != 'RTF'.
if you put that way, it should be as a option, I dont want that way.\


thanks

There is no seperator for a list-box, all you can do is do what is suggested, using an option to pretend to be a seperator.

What you can do so the user can never select a seperator is to use the onChange event, let the onChange event see whether the selected value is a seperator or not, and if it is then select the one right before it, so that'd be like:

<script language=javascript>
<!--

function Check()
{
   //alert(document.form1.selectbox.value)
   if(document.form1.selectbox.value=="SEPERATOR")
      document.form1.selectbox[--document.form1.selectbox.selectedIndex].selected = true

}

//-->
</script>

<form name=form1>

<select name=selectbox onChange="Check()">
<option value="RTF">RTF</option>
<option value="SEPERATOR">------</optionn>
<option value="Co-op">Coop</option>
<option value="SEPERATOR">------</optionn>
<option value="Intern">Intern</option>
<option value="SEPERATOR">------</optionn>
<option value= "Contract">Contract</option>
<option value="SEPERATOR">------</optionn>
<option value = "Other">Other</option>
</select>
</form>

Good luck!
