    when it comes to countries I usually put them into a xml file or create a static dropdownlist because how often do new countries popup and how often do countries change there names.

    I've been just thinking about this as well. I am thinking of going with an XML file. Somewhere in the world we get a new country or a name change it seems about every 1 or 2 years (e.g. Yugoslavia, Serbia, Kosovo?). This way I can just replace the XML file on any sites that are affected.
