- Create a class for jump box contents in a CSS stylesheet. This visually integrates it into your form design. In my example, I named the class "jump."
- Create a <form> tag and name it. I named my tag "jump1."
- Produce a <select> tag that explains what to do when you select an item from the drop-down box.
- Build your drop-down list in which each item consists of an <option> tag. This will tell your browser where to go and the drop-down item link text associated with it.
- Start the list with the default value you'd like to display in the jump box. For instance, my default value is "Jump to Section." Note: The default value will not have a URL associated with it.
- After you've created your dropdown list, close the </select> tag and then close the </form> tag.
Note: If you plan to use your jump box in more than one form, you can also put it in a subform.
