Does this help?
//SQL Query
'SELECT * FROM Table ORDER BY Field ASC'
 
//XHTML
<body>
  <select id="combobox">
    <option>&nbsp;</option>
  </select>
</body>
 
//Javascript
var rows; //rows from sql query
var select = document.getElementById('combobox');
 
while(select.hasChildNodes()) {
  select.removeChild(select.firstChild);
}
 
for(var i = 0; i < rows.length; i++) {
  var option = document.createElement('option');
  option.appendChild(document.createTextNode(rows[i]));
  select.appendChild(option);
}
