Marc, thanks for this, it works great, but is there a way to change the cascading child dropdown into a standard dropdown list control? My child lookup contains over 60 items when its not cascaded, so the control is rendered as the rather bulky and annoying "invisible selection window"-type menu control that requires a double-click to select an item instead of the nice standard dropdown list. What's the best way to change this child selection control into a standard dropdown control? Thanks.

I haven't tackled that idea, but I think it would be a good option to provide on the SPCascadeDropdowns function.  I'm going to copy this to a work item so that it's on the list of things to do in the Issue Tracker.

In the meantime, what you'd need to do is come up with a good mapping from the hybrid select to a normal select.  I don't think that it would be too bad to do.  Let me know your timeframe, and maybe I can slot it in to get it done for you instead.
