jQuery UI Selectmenu Plugin duplicate and extend the functionality of a native HTML select element, and lets you customize the look and feel, add icons, and create hierarchy within the options. Built with progressive enhancement and accessibility in mind, has all the native mouse and keyboard controls, and is ThemeRoller-ready.
The plugin uses progressive enhancement to pull the content and state information from the select before replacing it in the page. After replacing the select element, the selectmenu continues to act as a proxy to the select that it replaced, so when the form is submitted, the select value is still there to pass data to the server.
