It's not a select-listbox but a select-dropdown :)

>and the mouse over works but it stays on how do it go off when i remove the mouse over like the page i have in the link above
add  onmouseout="this.style.display='none'" line 14
<select id="dropdown" style="display:none;position:absolute;left:10px;top:10px;width:320px;background-color:#3C6" multiple="multiple" onclick="this.style.display='none'" onmouseout="this.style.display='none'">

>how do i make the  size of the drop down box bigger
add width:320px in the style attribute for example

>and have the drop down box in a  different color
add background-color:#3C6 in the style attribute for example

>i put in a link in the option area but it didn't work
I don't its possible. You can change location url if the user click on it :  onclick="location.href=this.text"
