Hi. I have a new site to do, and (so far) there are 3 things I haven't 
done before in Drupal. I'll make each a different message so the thread 
doesn't get confused.

The first one is what  is/used-to-be? called a combo box. That is, a 
select box that also allows one to type in an entry if none of the 
options will do. In terms of the operation of a normal combo, the issue 
is that while I can put a text box above a select, and when submitted, 
take the selected option, if one, or the text box contents, if any, 
normally a combo will take an option selection and deposit that text in 
the text-box portion, in case you want to edit it.
