thx lookandbuyme and ed...that is what i am talking about.
when the list of choices is a long one, it is a cherished feature. and as i mentioned above, auctiva is the only site i use, that does not offer this.
on the one page lister, other than custom item specifics, the drop downs don't have many choices so its not as seriously time wasting as on custom item specifics.
it would be great that if under the list for brand, one could click v, for example and not have to manually scroll to the bottom of a list
