    Question An imposible task?

    Hi all...

    I'm really new to this HTML stuff so please be gentle with me!

    What I'd like to do is this:

    Using HTML only. Is there a way to convert a list of alpha numeric characters (over 1000 of them) into a clickable list, so that when a character is clicked it is copied into a text box?

    Or am I asking too much?

    Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance for any help offered.

    Something like this?

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
      function addToList() {
        if (document.getElementById) {
          var selectElement = document.getElementById('char_list');
          document.getElementById('output').value +=
            selectElement.options[selectElement.selectedIndex].value;
        }
      }
    //--></script>
    <form action="..."><p>
      <select size="10" id="char_list" onchange="addToList();">
        <option value="abc">abc</option>
        <option value="def">def</option>
        <option value="ghi">ghi</option>
        <option value="jkl">jkl</option>
        <option value="mno">mno</option>
      </select>
      <textarea id="output"></textarea>
    </p></form>

    Hey Andy,
    as the post above is trying to imply, I'm afraid you cannot do it with JUST html, unless you do it manually 1 by 1.
    You can do it with client-side scripting like JavaScript, or server-side scripting like php!
