How do you put hyperlinks in drop down lists

I have just purchased the Expression Web. I have put in a drop down list but can not seem to get hyperlinks associated with them. Here is what I have:
[html]
<p class="style1"><select name="Swim" style="width: 170px">
<option>SWIMMING_POOL</option>
<option>Metal_Coatings</option>
<a href="swimming_pool_products.htm#MAGICOTE_METAL">M etal Coatings</a>

break;
<option>Concrete_Pool_Coatings</option>

<option>Concrete_Stain</option>

<option>Floor_Paint</option>

<option>Concrete_Curing_Membrane</option>

<option>Concrete_Sealer</option>

<option>Non_Skid_Coating</option>

<option>Anti_Griffiti</option>
[/html]

I would appreciate some help. Thanks. JJ

Did Expressions generate that code or did you edit it? If so, I've lost all respect for that program.

There is no such thing as the "break;" in html. Also, <option> is part of the <select> element which is all contained in a <form> and you have neither of those.

You cannot insert a hyperlink into the text of an option.

enter the below script into you html body
[html]
<form name="mycombo">
<select name="example" size="1">
<option value="http://www.google.co.uk"> Google </option>
<option value="http://www.cnn.com"> CNN </option>
<option value="http://www.geocities.com"> Geocities </option>
</select>

<script language="javascript">
<!--
function go()
{
location=
document.mycombo.example.options[document.mycombo.example.selectedIndex].value
}
//-->
</script>
<a href="javascript:go()"><img src=" place your go img here " border=0></a>
</form>
[/html]
