HTML Select list

Is there a way to make a multi select list work so that multiple selections can be made WITHOUT having to hold the <Ctrl> key down while selecting?

It's possible using javascript but not in IE

As an afterthought you could use a UL, if you are using jquery there is a number of plugins to convert a select to a UL and then it will be very easy to do it.

if your select list displays all of the options without scroll bars, then you can just use your mouse to select which options you want, if not, then Gary's suggestion is the way to go
