For HTML Combox, FireFox has a nice feature. E.g.
if you type in 1995, the 4th item wll be selected. This does not work in IE. Does any guru know if there is JavaScript somewhere to achieve the same goal?

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. And please use mixed case rather than all uppercase.

And, this forum is for JSP questions. Please be sure to post questions on HTML or JavaScript to the appropriate forum.

I have moved this topic to the HTML forum for you.
