You can always improve your pages both from the usability point of view and design point of view. Today we have a lightweight jQuery plugin named ddSlick that upgrades the behavior and usability of list-menus adding a better look and more information. The plugin simply works as a drop-down menu offering the possibility to add images and description next to your text.
The data that populates the drop-down options is based on JSON and has numerous options for customizing the basic functionality. There is also a callback function provided when any option is selected (great for updating hidden inputs) and the look & feel of the drop-down can be easily changed also.
