Optgroup – A Lost Element

So the other day I was looking at a site and it had groupings in a drop down. I had never seen that except for this particular site. My curious nature got the best of me and I checked out the source. It used “optgroup”. I had seen them before because they are autotext by Dreamweaver but never knew what they were used for. They were actually exactly what I wanted for a client that I’m working with right now. There is a nice little explanation on it at http://www.htmldog.com/reference/htmltags/optgroup/. Unfortunately, you can’t remove the italics from the title due to the fact that it the browser that is doing it, even FireFox.
