dropdown list highlight

I have a webpage with a <form> consisting of a large table grid of dropdown
lists used to make changes in a database. Some of these dropdown lists have
the same value. I'm trying to make it so that when a user mouses over one
of the dropdown lists, that dropdown list, and all other dropdown lists
having that same value are highlighted with a yellow background color. Then
on a mouseout the yellow highlights go away.

The goal is to it make it easy for a user to graphically see where all the
same valued dropdown lists are in the grid.

Ultimately when a user makes a new selection in a dropdown list and changes
its value, they are then able to mouseover that dropdown again and see same
valued dropdown lists based on the newly selected value.

I hope that makes sense.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to provide.

Here is a SIMPLE problem that I'm trying to solve. It works in Netscape 6.2, but IE6 gives ""No such interface supported." Below are page1.htm and page2.htm . In page1.htm, there are two dropdown lists. If you change the selection of the left one (e.g. choose parentoption2), it should open up page2.htm in a popup window.

I have a dropdown list with a couple of dozen entries. I can change the backgroup and text colour. But I cant find the CSS attribute which changes the highlight colour which appears as the mouse moves up or down the list. At the moment its the default deep purple colour you get in any windows app, but I'd like change this to a more suitable colour for my site. This is what I have already - <html>

Hi all, I have created a double dropdown list. Based on the first list selection, second list populates (this works fine). I have a submit button, which when clicked should run a select query based on the values selected on both the dropdown lists. But this part is not working.
