    image selection/drop down

    Hi All,

    I am under the impression that displaying images in a drop down list is not possible? The scenario I have is basically a database with a number of cars with thumbnail images. These images continiously change overtime and there is more than 40/50 cars in the database at one time. Anyway when a user fills out a contact form, I can populate the drop down lists with car titles, but this is confusing in some cases. Can anyone recommend an alternative method I could use to achieve a similar result? Ideally th perfect scenario would be to have a drop down menu with a list of thumbnail images.

    Check boxes are no good for me as this would make the form too big.

    Any suggestions welcomed!

    I thought maybe you could do something like this : http://bonrouge.com/test/selecttest.htm, but then I looked at it in IE and got a bit of a shock. (Works great in Firefox).
