Disabling options is not supported by IE, so I need some javascript to disable these two options in select box, like in Gmail.
<select name="select">
  <option disabled="disabled">Menu</option>
  <option>-- select 1</option>
  <option>-- select 2</option>
  <option disabled="disabled">Second menu</option>
  <option>-- select </option>
  <option>--select2</option>
</select>

Open in new window

That is not exactly what I was looking for, in this example disabled options are still selectable, correction is made after selection, i need prevention of selecting, like in gmail.
