Allow users to desect from SELECT?

I have a multiple select SELECT list and my users are complaining that they don't want to have to click the 'reset' button to clear their selections. Is there a way to set up a SELECT list similar to Checkbox in which users can simply click on a selected item to deselect it?

If you hold down the CTRL key, you can deselect.
