If you have over 1000 entries, each one with ~10 lines of text, I would go
with frames. Not inline-frames, but a true frames. So each change can load
the frame and show the information.

  Also, a <select> with 1000 entries? Break it apart. For example make one
with (imagine this is a select in your browser):

Abba .... Bee Gees                |V|
Beethoven .... Coolio                |
ManyOptions .... ZillionOptions |

  It's an interval of choices, first the user selects the interval, which
loads another select with only these "in between" entries.
