Trivial no. Last year it would have been almost impossible in fact
without Java or ActiveX :-)

First make yourself a 'static' page that can even achieve those results
in DHTML. That's the tricky bit.
There's a lot of JavaScript required to remake selectboxes on-the-fly.
Once you've got that happening you can step back and start to abstract
an XSL that will do it for you.


If you only want it to work in IE5, see some of the MSDN columns.
They've got some really tricky examples with keeping an XML object
around & manipulating it on the client-side.
