i have a database driven query that return about 250 rows.  the user doesnt like the html checkbox user interface as they need to select 30 or 40 at a time and checking checkboxes is really tedious.
can anyone suggest a real nice interface to maybe do the CTRL select like in windows.
or maybe something slicker.

Just a though, could you allow the user to refine his query by specifying a particular set?
For example, if it's a set of employees, instead of a query returning all employees, allow the user to refine the query by just returning "admin"? This could be done very simply if it is a viable option.
