    Country/State Dropdown List..use javascript?

    I found this here in a thread and was wondering would it be better to use this or to use javascript?
    and also where can I get a list of the states? all of what I've found has been in javascript so far.

    Good question.

    Some people have javascript disabled (like my boss) to block ads and other junk.

    If its in java however i think you can then have it perform an action after a selection, like enable a previously disabled field or auto jump to the next text box.

    Other than that.. it may just be preference?
