The best (cleanest) way IMO is to generate a complete HTML document for each 
"option"; dynamic pages are evil ;) If this is for an intranet, it is 
usually fine. If you cannot aford the extra bandwidth required, use an 
<iframe> to hold the contents, and set its URI with javascript in the 
<select>'s onchange attribute.

This has nothing to do with the server.
