soft_techy,
   Here is a small example illustrating many of the features of the select box, eg such as the value does not have be the same as the displayed text for the selection, how the value of the selected option can be accessed, how a change of selection can be detected and how a 'NULL"' entry can be useful for seeing if an item has actually been selected. By default the first entry is the option shown you can choose one by using selected like so <option value="3" selected>Prof</option> which would show Prof as the initial selection.

<form method="get" name="f1" >
  <select name="sbox"  onchange="document.SeeValue.value=document.f1.sbox.value">
    <option value="NULL">Select Title</option>
    <option value="1">Ms</option>
    <option value="2">Dr</option>
    <option value="Prof">Prof</option>
  </select>
<input type="text" name="SeeValue">
</form>

I am sorry I posted the wrong version this is it (see if you can spot why the above does not work :-)  )

<form method="get" name="f1" >
  <select name="sbox"   onchange="document.f1.SeeValue.value=document.f1.sbox.value">
    <option value="NULL">Select Title</option>
    <option value="1">Ms</option>
    <option value="2">Dr</option>
    <option value="3">Prof</option>
  </select>
<input type="text" name="SeeValue">
</form>

You can also try :
http://www.dhtmlcentral.com/ many examples and different menus (top menus, side menus)

http://www.webreference.com/dhtml/
but these are not free...dpending on what your purpose is, there may be a fee, but i will admit, they do offer great support, and code updates on a regular basis.

I find looking at other sites a good way to learn - if they do something you like you can view the source of the page (right mouse click on hte html page then click View Source).
This way if you like something you can copy the whole page source and rip out the bits you like. Of course this is just a good way to get ideas / examples of how do stuff.
