the Option object has four properties. text (what is shown), value (not 
shown), and a couple others having to do with defaultSelected or currently 
selected, but my memory fails me. the point is, yes the value and text can 
be different and can be done directly from HTML:

<option value="foo">bar</option>

is this what you are asking? - Cyanide_7
