    If you're referring to how they update the selections based on simply choosing an item from the drop down box, then they are doing that with Javascript. The code is in the page source. Everytime they make a selection Javascript submits the form with the selected data and their webserver delivers a new page accordingly.

    It would require some heavy coding, probably rather easy to do, but the database would be quite extensive

    and maintaining it can be a headache.

    Companies with money to burn use Selectica, which is awesome. If you can find a low end alternative then I'd be interested in taking a look too.

    If the page didn't reload on every selection it would be more impressive, but you could actually use an AJAX component to generate them on the fly without having to reload the page, but it's more complex doing it that way.

    I've not heard of selecticia. I had a look at their website but can't figure out what they actually provide or how much it costs. Which product? Just curious.
