XHTML Web Agent scroll list using Macromedia Dreamweaver

In using XHTML through Macromedia Dreamweaver, I have a scroll llist field (field a) which has choices, and another scroll list field (field b) which also has choices but depending on the choice that I would make in scroll list (field a). How do I create the option list for scroll list (field b) to show only particular choices that is applicable when I chose one in scroll list (field a)?

Example : I have choices Man, Woman, Child in scroll list (field a), if the user chose Man in scroll list (field a), the user can only see choices in scroll list (field b) either Hat, Neck Tie and Shoes, and if the user chose Woman in scroll list (field b), the user can only see choices in scroll list (field b) either Hair Clip, Long Gown and Sandals while if the user chose Child in scroll list (field a), the user can only see choices in scroll list (field b) either Mittens, Baby Shoes and Baby Socks?

This is called "Dependent drop downs" and you need to use some form of scripting to control how the second and third boxes are limited.

Googling for dependent drop down and the scripting language of your choice will produce tons of results.

There is no built-in behavior in DW 8 and below to generate these.  However, there is a Spry widget in DW CS3.
