Hi there

Does anyone know how I can create the following in MS Frontpage.

I want to create a website FORM in which clients can select their make & model of car from two dropdown boxes.

The FIRST dropdown box list has a selection of MANFACTURERS (Holden, Ford, Toyota etc). When the Manufacturer has been selected the 2nd dropdown box lists the MODELS from that manufacturer.

Im not sure what describes the actions Im wanting to achieve, relational dropdown boxes dosent seem right so Im having trouble looking Online for assistance in what I want to do.

If you can point to some example and the coding as well, that would be great.

There's the quick and dirty way (http://www.programmersheaven.com/2/FAQ-JavaScript-Create-Dynamic-Select-Boxes) or the modern, accessible, unobtrusive way (http://www.bobbyvandersluis.com/articles/unobtrusive_dynamic_select/index.html) to work with dynamic select/option elements.
