now check this, you can see all of them, but can't select them
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<script>
		function resetBack(thisObj)
		{
			thisObj.selectedIndex = 0;
		}
	</script>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
	<select onchange="resetBack(this)">
		<option value="1">1</option>
		<option value="2">2</option>
		<option value="3">3</option>
		<option value="4">4</option>
		<option value="5">5</option>
		<option value="6">6</option>
	</select>
</BODY>
</HTML>

To include a visual indication that the list is disabled (grayed out) try this:

<select>
    <option value="val1" disabled="disabled" selected="selected">Value 1</option>
    <option value="val2" disabled="disabled">Value 2</option>
    <option value="val3" disabled="disabled">Value 3</option>
    <option value="val4" disabled="disabled">Value 4</option>
    <option value="val5" disabled="disabled">Value 5</option>
</select>
