Hi all!

I am making a program that will allow people to purchase tickets. I'm relatively new at this so I'm just practicing with with concert tickets and stuff before going into the real thing.

I think I have the basis but I'm puzzled with my drop down menu's. I want to have a html drop down but populate the content of it with arrays. How would I go about doing that?

my code so far..
Code:
<html>

<center>
<br>
<br>
<br>
<h1><FONT COLOR="06799F">Oasis</FONT></h1>


<head>
<script type="text/javascript">


//validate the form (name shouldn't be blank)


function validate()
{
var x=document.forms["form1"]["Name"].value;										//validate the name field
if (x==null || x=="")
  {
  alert("Please fill in your Name.");												//show message if empty
  return false;
  }


var x=document.forms["form1"]["Email"].value;										//validate the email
var atpos=x.indexOf("@");
var dotpos=x.lastIndexOf(".");
if (atpos<1 || dotpos<atpos+2 || dotpos+2>=x.length)								//check for the "@" and "."
  {
  alert("Not a valid e-mail address.");
  return false;
  }


var x=document.forms["form1"]["Card"].value;										//validate the card field
if (x==null || x=="")
  {
  alert("Please fill in your Card number.");										//show message if empty
  return false;
  }

window.location= "thanks.html";

}

function calcTic(frm)
{
if (frm.dates.value=="")
{
alert("Please choose dates.")
return;
}
else if (frm.tic.value=="")
{
alert("Please choose number of tickets.")
return;
} 
else
{
var extra=frm.tic.value>3?10:0;
frm.total.value=""+Number (frm.dates.value*frm.tic.value+extra);
	}
}

//session expiry

setTimeout( "_SessionExpired()", 10 * 60 * 1000 );			//expires after 10 mins

function _SessionExpired()
{
alert("Session has expired!");						//alerts user
location.href = "1.html";						//redirects to login page
}


</script>

I am new to this so if anyone is able to show me how to go about this task and explain it'd be EXTREMELY helpful!


Thanks in advance!
