user input box and pick list together

P: n/a
Is there any way I can put those two together, so users can pick a
value in the list if they find the value that they are looking for;
otherwise, they can simply type any valuea within the pick list.
thanks,
CQ

This has been asked a couple of times recently. As I can't find the other
posts, I'll just give you this:

This is a solution I wrote for a previous query. As you can see, it
doesn't solve the problem as you would like it to be solved, but it's
about the best you can do with just HTML and JavaScript[1]. Other
solutions would have to involve custom ActiveX controls (IE only) or Java.

browsers tend to use different rendering rules, the page may not look
consistent.
