IE6 SELECT element fix

js framework in use is jQuery.

I was previously using a select.htc control that uses a div to emulate a SELECT that behaves like Firefox/Chrome.  An example is when you have these items:

Aaron
Arrow
Art
Roll

When you type A then R, IE annoyingly goes to Roll.
If you type A then A, it goes to Arrow.

Is there a jQuery component for IE6 or can you show a full HTML page that has a dropdown that works as it should (Fx,GC)?

Hi, I think you can search with the keywords: autocomplete or autosuggest

Below are some examples:

I looked at all the links and could not see something that works.
It has to degrade properly if Javascript is not active, which a select.htc does correctly.

I don't need an autosuggest (that filters), just one that shows everything a dropdown is supposed to, but responds to successive keystrokes in a sane way.
