Hello,

While I piecing together my Web site this evening, I put a drop down box on my page as site navigation. The drop down box is similar to the "Check these out!" box at the bottom of every W page, but it opens in the same window. I noticed on my Firefox browser that if the user somehow selects "Check these out!" or the dashes, the browser redirects to a 404 page.

I found a quick and dirty solution to that. I added a value="" to any option that is not meant to be selected. This fix may not be 100% idiot-proof, but it seems to work by not allowing any redirection. There's probably a better way to handle this, but I haven't looked (Googled) it up yet.

Wow...in the over three years this site has been running, you're the first person to get me to try selecting the dashes. I take my hair off to you!

I put in a Q'n'D fix of my own (to just go to the index page) but I'll put "look into better code" on my "to do" list. (DISCLAIMER: I really haven't been getting to my "to do" list lately)

Why 50*3* to get Jobber to the Stars, as opposed to 500? Just curious.
