    Default Cached Drop Downs

    Hello All, I am currently designing a web based form in ASP.NET/VB.NET that has several drop down menus that are reliable on others. E.g. iF The PRODUCT TYPE dropdown has Dairy selected then the PRODUCTS dropdown should display Milk, Cheese etc. I have this working but it means a round trip to the server and a select from the database each time the control is changed. I would like to cache the data on the client side to avoid round trips to the server. I have been told that XML Islands are a good way of acheiveing this, does anyone have a simple example of the use of XML Islands, or if anyone thinks they have a better way to resolve this problem, any help would be apreciated.<BR>Thanks Rob.
