Javascript is going to be your best bet for this, and is outside the scope of this site. Check out this site for more information on js: http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_intro.asp

Update:  I just tried out the module that CountZero mentioned. It's very slick and worth a look, especially if you have something complex to do and are already pretty familiar with Perl.

    It is also worth to check out the concept of XML Island. Basically data needed for your HTML page comes as a block of XML (within the same HTML file).

    Java Script has basic DOM support and that's how you get data from your XML island. In this case, the configuration of those dropdown just comes as data.
