This can be done with JavaScript - I don't know if you can do it in PHP.  I
had a site where I wanted to let people compare data for two states so based
on the first state that was chosen I populated the compare with the other
states.  If you want me to send you my code I can.  It uses another file too
- that one is a big JS array with all of the states in it.  I also do one
that populates a county box based upon a state.
