I recommend you investigate how popular directories (eg: Yahoo!) do it, and
emulate that sort of thing, unless you can come up with anything better.
Hint: big companies spend big bucks on UI design, so they will probably do
it better than the likes of you or I could come up with.
One concept could be - as you touch on - emulating a combo box idea using
an input, and some sort of multiple select / div sort of arrangement, and
having an AJAX call back to populate the multi-select thing with
appropriate filtered data as the user types. Google does it.
There's quite possible already a CF-friendly solution out there (maybe even
with CFFORM controls? Never use CFFORM meself).
I would rethink how you're presenting the information to the user, much like what Adam said. Research similar sites. Having a select box, or multiple boxes with thousands of options each would be very cumbersome and virtually useless to the average web surfer.
