I am a beginner when it comes to html so hopefully this is an easy question.  

In order to explore some things about drop down menus I want to create a simple adding page.  I wanted to have two drop down menus with the values 1,2,3 in the first one and 4,5,6 in the second one.  Then I want a button that adds the currently selected values together and displays it somewhere on the page (a text box or something would be fine)

    Hi VoodooFrog

    Actually this wouldn't be done with html, but with a script, more than likely javascript.

    Heres a few examples.
