I have your average basic drop down menu.

I have two questions:

1. Every drop down menu shows the first option on top and when clicked reveals the other options. Well, I don't like the old ugly box that is shown for a drop down menu. In the web program I am developing I need it to only display the text and not the box with the arrow. Does anyone know how this is possible?

I have already used a script that takes the opacity to 0 and doesn't show anything. The only problem is that I need it to show the text or something atleast for the people to see to click. In my case I just want the text and have that text able to pull down the drop down menu.

2. I actually want them to be able to mouseover the the specified text and have it bring up the drop down menu. So instead of click, I want mouseover.

I will GREATLY appreciate any help or direction with these 2 simple html form ideas.

Thank you!
