Making a google like suggest out of html controls.

I am making a search textbox that scan the contents of a selectbox for a match. This works perfectly, however I would like the select box to open up so that you can see 10 or so items in the list with the closest match at the top. The select is allready ordered. So all I need to do is simply open the select (down arrow click???) and keep it open till onblur in the textbox. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Kevin C

Here is what I am working with at this point...
