Here is a little info/advice on combo boxes. If you're using JFW, you need
to turn forms mode on to use them. They are basically just a list that lets
the user choose an option. Some of them act weird and throw you instantly to
the pages with the options you pass while you're trying to go down the list.
To prevent this from happening, hit alt-down arrow immediately upon entering
the box and before you start arrowing through the options. That will hold
the thing steady so you can see what's in it without being summarily hurled
hither and yon. <grin> When you've chosen the option you want and there are
no other fields or boxes you need to fill out you can often just hit enter
and you'll be taken to the page you wanted. If there are other fields etc
that you need to fill out, just tab to them after choosing your option.

I hope this is helpful,
