Menu with multiple selection?

I want to include Menus in the following manner for web based application:
The menu will be drop down menus. We want to have a check box kind of
feature in the menu items.User can select multiple menu items and on
clicking each, a tick mark appears in the menu item he has selected
(check box kind of feature).This way the user can track his selection.
When he wants to deselect a menu item already selected he can click on it
and the tick mark should get cleared.
The user can select multiple menu items as each triggers the display of a
line plotted on the same graph page. Deselecting any item would clear the
plot corresponding to it.
1. The question is how to implement menus with this check box kind of look
and feel.
2. I doubt that we can have check boxes in menu items in a web based
application?
3. We could have two images for each menu item one with the menu item name
and one with the menu item name and a tick mark to its left and swap these
images. But can we have images in menus?

you mean srop down menu as in select? You can not do it that way, you can try to make a div/layer which acts like it and put all of your html code in it.
I am not sure what you are asking exactly, nor do I feel like writing all the code.

You can do that using Flash.
