DropDownList with subheadings

I currently have a classic asp application that has a dropdownlist as pictured below.  Is there anyway to duplicate this in ASP.NET

One way is to override the rendering of the control, such that the option groups are used.
As a possible option, create a new class (possibly inherited from ListItem and INamingContainer) for a list item group that contains a collection of list items. In the render event for the control, output the option group HTML tag "<optgroup>" and then call all list items in the collection for the list items.
