mmmmm, I dont believe thats possible with any kind of select/combo box, you do mean a select/combo box I asume? Any how here is something I believe will work for you, it does that and a bit more (lets you add to and re order the list)

BTW : This would have been better suited in the javaScript forum

-----------------cut n paste code--------------------------------

<HEAD>
<title>Multiple Select Re-Order and Add</title>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function move(fbox,tbox) {
var i = 0;
if(fbox.value != "") {
var no = new Option();
no.value = fbox.value;
no.text = fbox.value;
tbox.options[tbox.options.length] = no;
fbox.value = "";
   }
}
function remove(box) {
for(var i=0; i<box.options.length; i++) {
if(box.options[i].selected && box.options[i] != "") {
box.options[i].value = "";
box.options[i].text = "";
   }
}
BumpUp(box);
}
function BumpUp(abox) {
for(var i = 0; i < abox.options.length; i++) {
if(abox.options[i].value == "") {
for(var j = i; j < abox.options.length - 1; j++) {
abox.options[j].value = abox.options[j + 1].value;
abox.options[j].text = abox.options[j + 1].text;
}
var ln = i;
break;
   }

if(ln < abox.options.length) {
abox.options.length -= 1;
BumpUp(abox);

dbox.options[i-1].text = tmpval2;
      }

If you have another read of my post you will notice a question, answering it will assist you in a solution.

The cut n paste code I have posted, did you run it?
What does that code fail to do relative to your objective?
The code posted used a multi select box. You asked for a list box, this could mean a select box or a multi select box. What type are you after?
Select box = user can make only one selection
Multiple Select box = user may make multiple selections
