jedi needed - reposition a list for the user (so they do not have to use the scroll bars)?

P: n/a
Hi. I have an HTML app that includes a psuedo drop-down menu I created
using some css and some vbs. It looks like so:
----------
|
option1 [] <-- vertical scroll bar
option2 |
option3 |
option4 |
option5 |

When a user clicks on say option3, that options child-options pop down
directly underneath the parents options position, like so:

----------
|
option1 []
option2 |
option3 |
-op2a |
-op2b |
-op2c |
-op2d |
-op2e |
<cont> |

Well apparently, sometimes the child option menu includes so many
options that they scroll out of sight and require the user to use the
scroll bar to view the entire list. So users have "suggested" that I
code this so that if they click on a parent menu option they would
like the option list to position itself so that the selected option to
position itself to the top of the scrolling area BEFORE popping down
its child options. That way maybe they will see the entire list of
child options, so the above example would look like so:

----------
option3 []
-op2a |
-op2b |
-op2c |
-op2d |
-op2e |
-op2f |
-op2g |
option4 |
option5 |

I know the "issue" is retarded and the result of lazy-@$$ users, but
does my description make sense? If so, anyone know how to do this?
