I am writing a servlet which uses html form field tag for selecting a list of choices, My question is if i want to have the option of having other than the select choices, what would be the best solution. Is there any tag/ anything that i can add to the html tag.
Thanks,

Create an option in the list with the value of "other". Create a text field to the side for "Other" choices. Put logic in your servlet that gets the value of the textfield if the value of the list is "other".
