    Hi there,

    Is it possible for the values in the <SELECT> combo boxes to be extracted
    from an external source rather than having to change the list of options on
    every single page on the web site when a change needs to be made to it?

    Thanks
    Dan

    Certainly. You can drive those option values from a database, or even a
    hand-coded array
