Default enter text in dropdownlist

I have a drop down list which I am populating from a database.
What I need to do is that when the focus is on the drop down list,
the user should be able to enter text.
Can anyone pleeease tell me how to do this?

This is similar one explained as above
<script type="text/javascript">
function displaytxtbox(x)
var displaytxtbox="txtbox"+x;
var displaytxtbox=document.all(displaytxtbox);
function removelist(x)
var removelist="list"+x;
var useremovelist = removelist;
var removelist=document.all(removelist);
function zipcode(a)
if (a == "new") {

<form name="OrganizationForm">
<input type="text" name="zip_code" size="4" id="txtbox1" style="display: none;">

<select name="choose_zip_code" id="list1" onChange="zipcode(this.form.choose_zip_code.value) ;return true;">

<option value="60601">60601</option>
<option value="77777">77777</option>
<option value="new">new</option>


If a user selects an existing zip code from the drop-down list, the selection just gets highlighted as normal. If they're zip code isn't listed and they click "new", the drop-down list disappears and a blank input box appears in it's place.
