    Should be a simple case of using javascript, and the onclick method of the SELECT object

    You can put all your values into an array, then show them depending on the selectedIndex of the list

    For the actual pop-up, I would consider using the overlib javascript library, as it should do what you need

    I don't know what you mean by:
