    looking for suggestions on how to do a movie title dropdown

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes..

    I've been asked to create a dropdown list for movie titles. Currently, we have all the movies listed in a long column.

    Any suggestions on what would be the best way to accomplish this? The data comes in from a feed. I just need to come up with a way to get the data into the form of a dropdown list.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here's the URL for the current page:

    Thanks in advance!

    Create an unordered list of links (with ul-li tags) and apply some drop down effects like one described in http://htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/

    Thanks for the reply, abduraooft.

    Unfortunately, I need something a little more complicated. Let me give you some more info.

    The data will be coming from a feed, so the dropdown needs to change dynamically. Also, what they're looking for is more of a <select> <option> scenario

    Hope that explains things a little better..
