My client wants a text input with type-ahead capabilities, with matches
that appear below the text input.   I've seen an example and I think
its a MS control.
If its possible with plain web technologies, its a customized text or

I think he's gotten the idea from expedia or some site that runs
ASP.net,  not that I want to go there - LOL.

I'm just brainstorming, and thinking what could simulate this and make
form input easier ?   gator  form completion ??   could Javascript (JS)
 trigger on a keystroke, and open a div, somehow make a selection and
repopulate the text box ?

I really don't want to go MS just to get this fancy little thing, so
I'm looking for options.
Maybe there's a way to do something similar.

Do you mean something like <http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en>?
Not possible with HTML, this involves JavaScript - and 'Google Suggest' was

Perhaps there is a free, ready-to-use implementation of the 'suggest-input'.

Yes, That is what I am looking for.
Maybe its not a MS thing at all.
I better start looking for AJAX related groups and resources.  Thanks
