Hit "M" again to get to secone &#060;OPTION&#062; starting with "M". etc.<BR><BR>So, to get to May, you would hit "M" twice, instead of typing "MAY". <BR><BR>Most people who use HTML daily are used to this way of working and might even be confused if you changed to the (admittedly more superior) VB way of doing things. <BR><BR>Anyway, to make it work you have to learn to capture keystrokes in a cross-browser way and do the right operation with them and...<BR><BR>If you still want to tackle it, see if has something in the JavaScript FAQ.<BR><BR>
